Scholarship Reviewers Wanted - Join the Club!

Perhaps the greatest impact a volunteer can provide through the OC Foundation is by reviewing and scoring scholarship applications. We saw a 232% increase in applications last year and anticipate a similar increase for the 2024/2025 application cycle. With an average of 4-5 hours total, Scholarship Reviewers will receive the training, support, and tools they need to be a part of a committee - reading our students' stories and helping us award $250k in scholarship grants.

There are three rounds of review this year:

  1. Transfer applications - March
  2. Continuing/Returning applications - June
  3. Entering applications - July

Details about scholarship applications and reviews are featured at:
