Announcing the BetterGrads-Pedrozzi Scholarship
BetterGrads is delighted to announce the BetterGrads-Pedrozzi Scholarship, which will award two $1,500 college scholarships to students who participate in our pilot eMentoring program at Granada High School in Livermore, Calif.
The BetterGrads-Pedrozzi Scholarship is funded by a partnership with the Pedrozzi Scholarship Foundation, a Livermore-based private family foundation. Since 2008, the Foundation has awarded more than 200 scholarships to deserving graduates of Livermore high schools in pursuit of higher education, totaling nearly $1 million.
The scholarship will recognize two student mentees at Granada High who have embodied the ideals of the BetterGrads eMentoring Program through leadership and community service. Students will fill out an online application, which includes two short essay questions and an optional letter of recommendation. Two equivalent scholarships will be offered at Livermore High School during the 2011-12 school year, when we expand our programs there.
The deadline to apply for the BetterGrads-Pedrozzi Scholarship is 11:59 p.m. PDT on Friday, April 29, 2011. Students may access the application by visiting: http://bettergrads.org/program/scholarships/apply/. A list of commonly asked questions is available at: http://bettergrads.org/program/scholarships/faq/.
