Description

The Ruppert Educational Grant Program was established through a trust and bequest agreement by Ralph Hale Ruppert and Lenore Martha Ruppert in memory of their mothers, Nellie Hale Ruppert and Amanda Miller Edwards. The program is designed to assist young people who have financial need and are willing to help themselves. Scholarships are awarded to "late bloomers"&--those students who show academic promise and improvement during the last years of high school or in the first few years of college, but are unlikely to receive other scholarships because of their low GPAs. Applicant must be a "late bloomer" who demonstrates academic promise and continuous grade point average improvement during high school or college. Must demonstrate community involvement. Maximum cumulative grade point average of 3.3 on a 4.0 scale. Must demonstrate financial hardship. Must be a graduating high school senior or graduate of a public or private high school in San Mateo County, San Francisco County, or Santa Clara County and planning to enroll or be enrolled in a two- or four-year college, university or vocational school as a full-time student. Must be a United States citizen or eligible non-citizen (eligible non-citizens include United States legal residents and A.B. 540 students).
