Who Can Apply: Created by an anonymous donor, the Skye scholarship is awarded to graduates from Mendocino County high schools who plan to attend an accredited and/or licensed vocational school, an accredited community college, or an accredited four-year college or university within the United States. Priority will be given to individuals who have a 2.0 GPA or higher, have financial need, and have demonstrated, through the arts, sports, community service, extracurricular activities, or their employment history, determination and a willingness to work hard in and out of school.
A primary consideration will be the student’s altruism and desire to make the world a better place. Special consideration will be given to applicants whose personal circumstances have limited their opportunities to pursue their goals.
Submission: A 2020 Community Foundation online application, including a high school transcript and two letters of recommendation from teachers, counselors, coaches, and/or employer that demonstrate the student’s determination and willingness to work hard in and out of school.
Deadline: March 20, 2020
