Inyo County Local Resident ESF Scholarship

The purpose of the Eastern Sierra Foundation (ESF) scholarship is to encourage Inyo County college students (including Benton & Chalfant residents) to enroll in and attend classes at the Bishop campus or take Cerro Coso online classes in an approved educational program. All approved on-ground Bishop & online course enrollment fees will be paid, and up to a maximum of $500 for required textbook fees. The Scholarship will remain in effect to support 60 students each semester as long as funding is available to support the program. Scholarship requirements and benefits may change at any time. Maintaining good academic standing and progress is important.
