Silicon Valley Community Foundation administers a variety of scholarship programs that grant up to $40,000 to high school, community college and university students. The majority of our scholarships are designated for current or former residents of San Mateo and Santa Clara counties.

In spring 2013, through the community foundation managed scholarship funds, we awarded 115 scholarships totaling over $394,500 and in partnership with our donors, through our donor involved scholarship funds, we awarded 142 scholarships totaling more than $831,757. Since 2007, our scholarship programs have awarded more than $6.1 million to help students pursue higher education.

All scholarships have been established by generous local individuals, corporations or organizations to assist students with their educational pursuits. Whether honoring loved ones or providing for a specific community, each scholarship expresses a deep belief in the power of education to help young people achieve their dreams.
