Purpose: The Yuba County Superintendent of Schools, in partnership with the Yuba Feather Rivers Sunrise Rotary Club, is sponsoring the "Every Student A Scholarship Foundation." The purpose of this Scholarship Foundation is to insure every student in Yuba County an opportunity to continue their education after high school. The intent is to build hope in the heart of each child and to provide financial support for an education. The scholarship foundation leadership will focus on matching kindergarten children with some community partners who would like to participate in this scholarship foundation. This program gives each child the means to pursue college or vocational training. Any student and parent may participate in this foundation at any grade level. The Superintendent of Schools and the Yuba Feather Rivers Sunrise Rotary Club will make every effort to identify a community partner. The highest priority for assigning a sponsor will be given to a kindergarten child. The community partners will pledge monthly donations for their identified child. Each child's parent or guardian is expected to meet their monthly financial obligation with payment to their child's scholarship account. Scholarship payments will be made by the foundation directly to the college or technical school of the student's choice. Scholarship payment is limited to the amount of money which has been paid into the student's account and earned interest.
