  • Scholarship Description
  • This program was established in 2007 through a generous gift from Marie A. Calderilla who believed deeply in the importance of education. The purpose of this scholarship is to enable women to pursue courses of study that they would otherwise be unable to follow due to limited financial means. The selection committee looks for academic promise, women who have demonstrated that they are committed to obtaining an education, and personal characteristics such as honesty, good judgment, and perseverance. Recipients are eligible for up to three years of funding; however, students must meet renewal requirements to continue to receive the award. Students enrolled in a four-year degree program at a San Mateo County Community College District college are eligible for up to four years of funding.

    Applicants must be female students, pursuing first undergraduate degree or certificate program, graduating high school senior or returning student planning to attend a college in the San Mateo County Community College District (CaƱada College, College of San Mateo, and Skyline Community College) and must demonstrate financial need.
