• Scholarship Mountain View

  • Have you been thinking about the rising cost of education and how our local high school students will make it through four years?

    Enabling hard-working, dedicated students who have already demonstrated academic success, the ability to overcome obstacles, a drive to be a person of impact on their world and beyond and passion for serving others to reach their goal for higher level education is our mission.

    Our big audacious goal for the 2018 scholarship round is to raise $200,000 with a vision to make this a 4 year scholarship program. This goal is in response to the following question:

    What happens if our scholarship students complete their first year and then don’t have the money to continue their education? Then we haven't gotten them far enough.

    Our goal of $200,000 for 2018 will enable MVCOCEF to give 10 Mountain View resident High School seniors, $5,000 each year for 4 years.

    Our target applicants have the following in common:

    • First in their families to attend college: many of these students participate in the AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) program, which is dedicated to closing the achievement gap by preparing all students for college and other postsecondary opportunities
    • Service: Applicants participate in projects and activities outside the realm of work and formal education or shows a willingness to serve his or her school, friends, family or community
    • Goals & Objectives: Applicants demonstrate that they are developing a sense of purpose in their present life and for the future by setting goals and objectives focused on a career path
    • Financial Need: While not a major factor, financial need is considered in deciding between two equally qualified applicants

    Will you join with us as we grow this scholarship program to a 4 year program and have an even greater impact on our local High School students’ futures?
