Contra Costa Chapter’s scholarship program begins when the 2019 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 five).

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 will be determining the scholarship amount and the number of scholarships given at its upcoming October board meeting. There may be less scholarships than four, but at a higher amount than $2,000 each or there may be no changes. We started the program in 2005 and we have been able to give out 61 scholarships, totaling $90,000.00. We appreciate your generosity and support of this program and hope you will add some additional money with your dues payment when the dues notice is sent out. The individuals we support may be future leaders of Chevron and could be goodwill ambassadors for Chevron at their universities and in the future. If you want to send in a check for the 2019-2020 scholarship program now, you are welcome to do so and you would send your contribution to Chevron Retirees Assn., P.O. Box 371, Orinda CA 94563.
