The Ohlone College Foundation is proud to announce the second year of The Ohlone Promise, a scholarship opportunity for high school seniors living in the Tri-City area and planning to attend Ohlone College. The Ohlone Promise is a four semester scholarship (valued at $3600) that will be awarded in 2015 to 20 students.

Designed for seniors graduating from high schools within the Ohlone Community College District, The Ohlone Promise offers an opportunity for college tuition, textbooks, and related fees to be fully covered! To be considered, students must attend one of the public high schools within the Ohlone Community College District:

Fremont Unified School District:
American, Irvington, Kennedy, Mission San Jose, Washington, Robertson

Newark Unified School District:
Newark Memorial, Bridgepoint

New Haven Unified School District:
Logan High, Conley Carabello

Applicants should have a minimum 2.5 GPA or demonstrate extenuating circumstances that resulted in a lower GPA. Financial need is not required, but consideration will be given to those who qualify and/or just miss the FAFSA threshold. A reference or recommendation letter from a high school teacher or counselor is required. Students will also be asked to write a short essay and commit to attending Ohlone College full-time for four semesters.*

The Ohlone Promise Scholarship is sponsored in part through the generous support of Cargill and Janice Futch-Claridge. We thank them for this commitment.
