The South Bay Chinese Service Club scholarships award program entered into its 48th year of awarding scholarships to exemplary high school students of Chinese descent at our local community. Children of club members and students residing in Fremont, Newark, or Union City are eligible to apply. The purpose of the scholarship program is to recognize these talented students for their hard work and achievements, and to provide encouragement for the challenges ahead. The applicants are carefully evaluated based on academic achievement, leadership, and community service.
We are asking for your financial support to help us to reach out to our best students. Our recipients are an exceptional group of highly motivated future leaders - each year it is difficult to select just a few. During the 2017-2018 school year, with the generous donations from many of our members and major sponsors (which include individual members as well as corporate sponsors such as Fremont Bank, Comcast, BlackRock, Republic Services, Dutra Enterprises, and Citizens for Better Community), our organization awarded a total of $27,000 scholarship awards to 22 students. For the 2018-2019 school year, with your help, our goal is to generate an equal or higher amount for our scholarship fund.
The scholarship awards will be presented during the annual scholarship banquet to be held on a Wednesday evening in 2019 at the Mayflower Restaurant in Union City. Our guests will include applicants, donors, former award winners, club members, school counselors, and local officials. A keynote speaker will address the students, their parents, and the dinner guests.
The names of the donors who make this program possible will be included in the program and other printed materials if the donations are received by March 30, 2019. Donations of any amount are greatly appreciated. Donations of $125 or more are entitled to receive complimentary dinners at the scholarship banquet and all donors will receive written acknowledgment for their tax-deductible contributions. (Tax ID #94-2963262)
Donation amount of $2,000 (incl. 6 dinners); $1,000 (incl. 5 dinners); $500 (incl. 4 dinners); $250 (incl. 2 dinners); $125 (incl. 1 dinner).
