What does a scholarship consist of?

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

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.
