The Orange County Community Foundation has established the Margaret E. Oser Scholarship Fund to assist females currently enrolled at a Southern California – Orange County community college who are planning to transfer to a four-year college or university for the upcoming academic year.
The program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarships and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Eligibility for individual programs is determined at the sole discretion of the sponsor, and eligible applications are reviewed by Scholarship America’s evaluation team.
If selected as a recipient, the student will receive an award ranging from $2,500-$5,000.
Awards are not renewable; however, students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements. Preference will be given to previous award recipients.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
Applicants will be notified in July. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of The Orange County Community Foundation. Payments are made in one installment in early August.
Financial need will be considered. Recipients must demonstrate need.
Scholarship America will select ten finalists and the Orange County Community Foundation will select recipients. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
Also as part of your application, one online recommendation form from an educational instructor must be submitted on your behalf by May 4, 2023 3:00 pm Central Time.
Your application is not complete unless all required documents are submitted electronically through the Scholarship America Student Hub.
