At Making Waves Education Foundation, we partner with students from low-income backgrounds, first-generation college students, and people of color so college is affordable and graduation is attainable. We are supporting San Francisco Bay Area students from low-income backgrounds through a new need-based scholarship opportunity!

The Making Waves program is need-based, meaning students must meet the eligibility criteria of being from a low-income background and demonstrate the need for financial assistance.

What other benefits come with the scholarship?

Twenty eligible students will receive up to $20,000 each in scholarship funding for up to five years – and will be enrolled in Making Waves Education Foundation’s college and career success program, which pairs students with college coaches, financial coordinators, and career specialists.
