This program was established in 2001 through the Trust of Mrs. Hazel Reed Baumeister, a longtime resident of Burlingame. The purpose of the scholarship, established in her memory, is to support high school graduates of high academic achievement who would be unable to pursue higher education without financial assistance. 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. Awards up to $5,000. 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; 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 currently enrolled in a four-year college or university as a full-time student; and be a United States citizen.
