Contra Costa Chapter’s scholarship program began when the 2019 dues notice was sent out. As in past years, the scholarships are for one year, and awards will be based on academic merit and ability. 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:

Students should submit their scholarship application to Scholarship America NO LATER THAN MAY 2, 2019. The application may be completed online but it cannot be saved and sent directly to Scholarship America. Remember to print out what you have completed on the application.

For this academic year (2019-2020), the Board has determined that we will be giving out three scholarships for $2000 each. If we receive enough additional donations, we may be able to give out four. Additional contributions should be made out to Chevron Retirees Association, P.O. Box 371, Orinda, CA 94563. We started this program in 2005 and we have been able to give out 61 scholarships, totaling $90,000.

We appreciate your support of this program as we enter our 14th year of offering scholarships and hope you will add some additional money with your dues payment to continue this support. The individuals we support may be future leaders of Chevron. We are so proud of all our scholarship recipients and we are pleased that our members have supported our program.
