studentsSparkPoint at Skyline College received a $125,000 grant from The Grove Foundation. This funding supports the scholarships and services provided by SparkPoint through the Grove Scholars Program.  Up to 50 Career and Technical Education (CTE) Students from Skyline College will be selected to receive up to $2,000 in the 2017-2018 academic year.  Grove Scholarship applications are available online at www.skylinecollege.edu/sparkpoint and are due by September 14 at 3:00 p.m.

Eligible students will be selected for the program based on three short personal statements that describe who they are, why they have chosen their career path, and why financial literacy is important to them. Academic standing and GPA are not a factor in selection, as long as the student meets the minimum requirement of 2.0 GPA and 75% completion rate.  Once being selected for the Grove Scholars Program, students will receive individualized financial coaching and career counseling, as well as a $2,000 scholarship for the semester.
