Scholarship Program for the 2017-2018 School Year

Contra Costa Chapter’s 2017-2018 scholarship program will begin in late 2016 when the 2017 dues notice is sent out. As in past years, the scholarships are for one academic year and awards will be based on academic merit and ability, as well as extra-curricular activities. Scholarship America, a national non-profit educational support organization, will select the recipients and distribute the awards. We suggest that you encourage your children, grandchildren or great-grandchildren to apply for one of the scholarships (the chances of receiving a scholarship are better than one in four).

Students may apply each year they are eligible, but those who have previously been awarded a scholarship by our organization are not eligible to reapply. The criteria for eligibility are:

The Board of Directors has approved $2000.00 for each scholarship and the number of scholarships is four. Since we started the program in 2005, we have been able to give out 53 scholarships, totaling $74,250.00. We appreciate your generosity and support of this program and hope you will add some additional money with your dues payment if you haven’t already done so. The individuals we support may be future leaders of Chevron and could be goodwill ambassadors at their universities and in the future for Chevron. If you have already sent in your dues for 2016 and want to give additional support before sending in next year's dues, please send your contribution to Chevron Retirees Assn., P.O. Box 371, Orinda CA 94563.
