local community scholarships for graduating seniors are paid from funds here at
OCCF that carry out the specific wishes of donors who want to support and
promote educational achievement. Donors may want to reward academic success,
support students going to a certain school or those who choose a certain course
of study, or students who meet some other specific requirement. Last year we
awarded thirty-nine local scholarships to high school seniors from Owen
Valley, Cloverdale, and the
Academy. More than half
of the students that applied for scholarships were awarded at least one
scholarship, so last year, a student who turned in a completed application had a
50/50 chance of receiving at least some money. One in five of those scholarship
recipients received more than one scholarship.
year, your OCCF, thanks to our generous donors, supported 18 high school
students with over $26,000 in scholarship money.
