Description

This program was established in 1987 in memory of Dr. R. Carter Crain and Mildred E. Crain, through Mrs. Crain's will. The purpose of the scholarship is to enable high school graduates to pursue courses of study that they would otherwise be unable to follow due to limited financial means. The selection committee looks for academic promise, documented perseverance in activities outside the classroom, the quality of the personal statement and personal characteristics such as honesty, good judgment and commitment to serving the community. Students may apply to both the Crain Educational Grant Program and the Hazel Reed Baumeister Scholarship Program, but may receive only one of these scholarships. Must have demonstrated community involvement over a period of several years; have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale; have demonstrated financial hardship; must be a graduating high school senior or graduate of a public or private high school in San Mateo County or Santa Clara County; planning to enroll or enrolled in a four-year college or university as a full-time student; and a United States citizen.
