Crain Scholarship Program

Scholarship Sponsored by Silicon Valley Community Foundation

Value: $5,000
Awards Available: 10

For students showing academic excellence, extracurricular activities and a commitment to the community.

BACKGROUND

This program was established in 1987 in memory of Dr. R. Carter Crain and Mildred E. Crain, through Mrs. Crain's will. The purpose of the scholarship is to enable high school graduates to pursue courses of study that they would otherwise be unable to follow due to limited financial means. The selection committee looks for academic promise, documented perseverance in activities outside the classroom, the quality of the personal statement and personal characteristics such as honesty, good judgment and commitment to serving the community. Eligible students will apply for the joint “Crain and Hazel Reed Baumeister Scholarships” program through our online portal.
