The Elaine and Barry Gilbert College Scholarship is for Jewish high school seniors or past Gilbert Scholarship recipients who are already enrolled or planned to enroll in a full-time undergraduate course of study in the University of California (UC) system, at California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo, or at Hillsdale College in Michigan. Special consideration will be given to graduates of San Francisco’s Lowell or Washington High Schools.
The scholarship will be awarded based on financial need, minimum cumulative high school GPA of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale for new applicants and 3.0 out of 4.0 for renewals, except in extenuating circumstances that are addressed in the application, and demonstrated involvement in the Jewish community. Applicant's permanent residence must be in the greater San Francisco Bay Area, which includes San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Alameda, Contra Costa, Solano, Marin, Napa, and Sonoma Counties. Multiple scholarships between $1,000 - $3,000 are expected to be awarded annually. Provided eligibility requirements are met, past recipients may reapply.
