Our scholarships are financial contributions to students of up to $1,000 per year for up to four years of college. Scholarships are paid out each year when enrollment is confirmed. Also, if your college is a Collegiate Partner of ScholarshipAmerica, our scholarship is not deducted from the grants or aid the school is contributing to you.
Who is eligible?
You are eligible if you are a graduating senior in a high school located in the city of Oakland, California. Further scholarship requirements include a minimum 2.5 GPA and a valid application submitted by the deadline. Scholarships are awarded based on financial need and funds availability.
Grants for the first year are paid at the beginning of the school year with proof of college enrollment. If awarded a multi-year scholarship, grants for years two through four are contingent on further requirements as described in the application form, subject to funds availability.
