Local Scholarship

Thank you for helping us raise over $35,000 to support women’s education during our 2023 Holiday Campaign!  Educating women improves the well-being of whole families and the health of entire communities. The impact of your generosity will  continue into 2024 and beyond!

Over the last 40 years, Local Scholarship has awarded more than $1,000,000 in scholarships to college juniors or seniors studying to complete their Bachelor’s degrees, with $129,000 awarded in 2023 alone.

Eligibility for the scholarships is determined by:
• Permanent home address in Campbell, San Jose, Milpitas or Santa Clara
• Two full years at an accredited college or university
• Minimum of a 3.0 GPA
• Enrollment in a four-year institution as a junior or senior

The scholarships are funded through grant writing, monetary donations, and an annual holiday fundraising event. The application period for 2024 Local Scholarships will open March 1, 2024 and close on April 15, 2024.   For more information, click here: Local Scholarship Information.

Our 2023 Local Scholarship Recipients were a diverse and accomplished group of women.  You can also read what past scholarship recipients had to say about how scholarships impacted their lives.
