SAN LUIS OBISPO ― The Community Foundation San Luis Obispo County has awarded $230,000 in scholarships to 60 graduating students. These scholarships are awarded to high school seniors across San Luis Obispo County to support them as they seek higher education. Scholarships are awarded to students for academic rigor, financial need, extracurricular achievements or commitment to their community.
Many of the scholarships offered through The Community Foundation are multi-year scholarships and offer financial support to students through their academic careers. The multi-year scholarships are instrumental in providing students with the resources to succeed not only in their first year but in receiving their degree and finishing their pursuit. Areas of college study for our recipients include engineering, mathematics, automotive studies, nursing, and the sciences.
“Each year, it is our privilege to acknowledge and award our hard-working, high-achieving and community-driven high school seniors in San Luis Obispo County,” said Heidi McPherson, CEO of The Community Foundation. “We are thankful to our donors and their generous commitment to enhancing the education and future of our youth.”
