New American Scholarships – SF Bay area

Dear E4FC Friend,

Educators for Fair Consideration are now accepting applications for our 2011 New American Scholars Program. We provide financial awards and support services to low-income immigrant college students who live and/or attend school in the San Francisco Bay Area.

In 2011, we will be offering scholarships of up to $10,000 to cover tuition and other college expenses. Scholars will be selected for their academic excellence, financial need, and community impact. They will be expected to participate in E4FC events and commit to community service or professional development activities for the year.

Application Process
The application deadline is Tuesday, March 1st. Applicants are required to complete and submit both an Online Preliminary Application and a Paper Application (including essays, transcripts, and recommendations). Please visit our website for complete instructions and application materials.
