College Scholarship Program

East Bay College Fund was formed in 2002 by a committed group of East Bay citizens, educators, and community activists. Since its inception, East Bay College Fund has granted over 400 college scholarships totaling $5.5 million.

We provide two and four year scholarships worth up to $16,000, mentoring, on-going college counseling and life skills training to East Bay (primarily Oakland) public high school students from low income families and communities with historically low college attendance rates.


In 2015, we will have 107 college graduates, many of whom have committed to support East Bay College Fund or to give back to the Oakland community.
