Description

This program was established in 2007 through a generous gift from Marie A. Calderilla, pictured, who believed deeply in the importance of education. The purpose of this scholarship is to enable women 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, women who have demonstrated a commitment to completing a degree or certificate program or to increasing their work skills, and personal characteristics such as honesty, good judgment and perseverance. Recipients are eligible for up to three years of funding; however, students must meet renewal requirements to continue to receive the award. Students enrolled in a four-year degree program at a San Mateo County Community College District college are eligible for up to four years of funding. Open to a female student, pursuing first undergraduate degree or certificate program. Must be a graduating high school senior or re-entry student planning to attend a college in the San Mateo County Community College District (Ca??ada College, College of San Mateo and Skyline Community College). Must have demonstrated financial hardship, be serious about improving her life through education, and a United States citizen or eligible non-citizen (eligible non-citizens include United States legal residents and A.B. 540 students).
