The Peninsula College Fund
Our mission is to empower low-income, first generation college students to graduate and obtain a job that aligns with their career goals.
What We Do
Each scholar receives $3,000 per year which is renewable annually for all four years of college. These funds help fill their financial aid gap and minimize student debt.
We carefully match each scholar with a trained college-educated adult who serves as an ally, advisor, and role model throughout college and often beyond.
Our scholars participate in intensive workshops to help them navigate college life and academics and build the knowledge and skills to prepare for post-college employment.
We work with employers to develop summer internships, provide scholars with information on existing opportunities, and offer stipends to scholars pursuing meaningful unpaid summer internships.
