Ninety-one students will be awarded $111,950 in scholarships by the Ohlone College Foundation this year. These students are being honored at the 2013 Scholarship/Donor Reception at the Ohlone College Newark Center on May 29 at 4pm. The event not only recognizes the scholarship winners but also provides an opportunity for the recipients to meet and thank their scholarship donors.

Among the many outstanding students recognized at the event, 16 have been carefully selected to receive the first-ever Ohlone Promise scholarships. The Ohlone Promise is a new scholarship program developed by the Foundation for graduating high school seniors who plan to attend Ohlone College in the fall. Students were eligible to apply if they attended one of the 10 high schools within the Ohlone Community College District. The Ohlone Promise is a four-semester, full-ride scholarship totaling $3,600, which covers college tuition, books and related fees for two full years at Ohlone College awarded to 16 applicants.
