CBC Foundation is a 501(c) (3) federal tax exempt organization established by a group of Chinese Americans who want to bring more awareness and appreciation of their culture to the community. Additionally, their goal is to inspire the Chinese American population to get more involved and contribute to the community-at-large mainly in the areas of education, health and business.
Starting this year, CBC Foundation has decided to offer six $1,000 scholarships to six graduating seniors - representing the various high schools in Fremont Unified School District.
To be eligible, applicants must have an un-weighted high school GPA of 3.0 or above and be admitted to an accredited college. Students need to demonstrate good moral character traits such as Respect, Responsibility, Compassion, Courage, Honesty, Integrity, Self-Control, Perseverance, Trustworthiness, Gratitude, etc., that are developed through trials in life.
All of the recipients have met the stated criteria, and have clearly shown strong moral strength. Since there were no applicants from Robertson High School, the remaining $1,000 is being awarded to the student with the next highest qualification. The scholarship awards will be presented during the Fremont Unified School Board meeting on Wednesday, June 8 at 6:30 p.m., 3300 Capitol Avenue.
