The College Bound Scholarship Program is designed to financially assist qualified applicants in obtaining degrees from accredited academic institutions of higher learning. Annually, eligible students can apply for a College Bound Scholarship, which typically awards students up to $6,000 to be used towards direct costs (tuition, room, board) and indirect costs (personal expenses, books, and transportation) for higher education. Scholarship amounts may vary according to donor specifications.
Scholarship selection is based on a combination of academic performance, community service, extracurricular activities, financial need, and a commitment to College Bound.
College Bound students are eligible to apply for the College Bound scholarship if:
They are currently in the 12th grade.
They have actively and consistently participated in the Academic Mentoring Program for at least one academic school year.
