Eastern Sierra Foundation Scholarship

The Eastern Sierra Foundation, formed to promote higher education in the Eastern Sierra, has created the Eastern Sierra Foundation Scholarship. The scholarship is available to any California resident (at least one year residency required) who resides in Inyo County. Applicants must attend Cerro Coso Community College, the Bishop Campus, as a full-time student (12 units or more).

The primary purpose of this scholarship is to encourage potential Inyo County students (Including Benton residents) to enroll and attend classes at the Bishop campus and work toward an educational goal such as obtaining an Associate's Degree, Certificate, and or complete a significant number of general education units for students planning to transfer to a university. The scholarship is available for Fall and Spring semesters only and the scholarship application is available on the Bishop campus at Admissions and Records or at the Counseling Office. The applications are available when registration begins.

The Scholarship pays for all course enrollment fees and up to a maximum of $300 for required text book fees. It is only available to students attending the Bishop campus. As a rule, it does not cover students taking online classes.

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. Please check with Admissions and Registration for the latest information.
