In 2012, 33% of district students completed the FAFSA by the March 2nd priority deadline. In 2016, sixty-seven percent of district seniors completed their FAFSA or California Dream Application by the priority deadline. WCCUSD leads Contra Costa County in financial aid completion.
The Ed Fund will once again be awarding scholarships to deserving youth who are graduating from WCCUSD schools in the Spring. Over $100,000 will be awarded to students for their college education. This year’s application deadline is March 5, 2018.
Yesterday, June 28th, was my last day as a community college student at Contra Costa College. A lot has happened to me since graduating from high school in 2013. It is 2016 now and I’m headed off to my university— San José State University.
After I graduate, I will be applying to Stanford’s Policy, Organization, and Leadership Service graduate program, as well as to University of San Francisco and San Francisco State University’s Educational Leadership programs.
It has been an amazing year filled with late nights, good grades, and funny memories out with friends. I don’t think I can imagine my freshman year any different. College was, at the same time, what I expected and not what I expected.
My second year in college has come to an end I am grateful that I had the Ed Fund Scholarship to provide me its support in funds I needed.
I came into UC Davis with a fixed mind of pursuing a career in environmental science. I dislike walking through my community and seeing empty areas of soil that could be more aesthetic and beneficial for the people.
Everything that I have been working for in high school has truly paid off. I survived my first full year of college.
College has been an amazing experience! My first semester ends next week, Friday, December 19th.
This first semester here at Lincoln University has been one of many learning opportunities and a quest to find myself.
