Transportation scholarship adjustment improves acceptance

By Bethaney Lee

A transportation scholarship will be distributed through eligible programs serving focus populations identified in the CCSF Student Equity Plan according to the Office of Student Equity whose focus is on African American, American Indian/Alaskan Native, Pacific Islander, Latinx, Filipino, DSPS, Veteran and Foster Youth.

The scholarship will be provided as a Clipper card with $100 credit.

Minimum requirements to obtain the scholarship include enrollment in nine or more units at City College with a 2.0 GPA or higher and a completed Educational Plan provided by a counselor.

Associate Dean of Student Equity, Laura G. Lara-Brady, Ph.D. said, “As a results of moving the GPA requirement from 2.5 to 2.0, we have seen an increase of students obtaining a transportation scholarship. However, I would like to remind you that this transportation scholarship is meant to help underserved students identified in the Student Equity Plan.”
