WHO: Graduating seniors from an accredited high school in the Morongo Basin.


WHAT: The Roy Greenleaf, Jr. Education Fund was established by the estate of F. Roy Greenleaf, Jr. and is administered by the Copper Mountain College Foundation. The Fund is designed to provide ongoing financial assistance to deserving students of the Morongo Basin so that they can reach their educational goals and serve their community. Throughout their approved studies, they will receive grants from the Scholarship Fund that, in combination with any other financial assistance obtained, will cover tuition, books, fees, and standard living expenses through a bachelor’s degree.

 

WHEN: Applications are available in your high school counseling office or online at www.cmccd.edu. The deadline to turn in applications will be 3 p.m. Wednesday, February 15, 2017.

 

REQUIREMENTS: Academic excellence and/or financial need are not the primary criterion of the Fund. Mr. Greenleaf desired that “average” deserving students have an equal chance to receive support. He was particularly interested in helping students who possess a strong determination to succeed and who have demonstrated, by extra effort, an abiding desire to help others, in school, family, and the community.
