Local Spotlight: Stockton Scholars

Finding support for your career and college-bound student just got easier with the Stockton Scholars

Located at The Hub, 1700 S. El Dorado St. in Stockton, CA, you’ll find the team working on Stockton Scholars scholarship, Summer Summit program, and preparing for events with students on high school campuses. Stockton Scholars is made possible through the initial $20 million donation secured by Stockton’s Mayor Michael Tubbs in 2018. This renewable scholarship helps high school graduates who are on their way to a University, Community College, or Trade School Apprenticeship!

In it’s first year, 1,300 students received a scholarship! Read more about the Stockton Scholars Signing Day.

Stockton Scholars Signing Day! I’m so proud of my cousin, Ryanna, for being one of the scholarship recipients!

There are several ways to get involved with the Stockton Scholars. Here’s how – 

Adult mentors are needed to participate in the mentorship program. (Must be over 21 years old.) Attend their information session at The Hub on July 17, 2019 at 4:00 PM. 

For current college and high school students, join an info session today, Wed. June 12, 2019 at 5:00 PM at The Hub to learn ways to volunteer!

We all can provide support through private and corporate donations. If you personally cannot donate, ask your employer to make a donation. This is the perfect time of year to ask! 

Financing higher education can be challenging for families. Very often the notion is passed off because we believe we can’t afford it. I’m proud there are people and organizations supporting our students college and career dreams!
