The graduates have worked very hard for every one of those scholarships,” said Executive Director of Community Engagement Ginger Ontiveros. “I’m also proud of our District for creating systems specifically designed to support our outstanding graduates in their pursuit of higher education. The District’s Making Hope Happen Foundation awards $3,000 mentor-supported college scholarships to approximately 100 graduates each year. The District also has a long-standing partnership with the non-profit San Bernardino Community Scholarship Association, which coordinates local donors who have created scholarships just for SBCUSD graduates.”
