San Joaquin Achievers Scholarship Network

The California Student Opportunity and Access Program (Cal-SOAP) is designed to enable more young Americans to succeed in middle and secondary school, to study hard, and to take the right courses to become college eligible and competitive for admission to colleges and universities. Through the collaborative efforts of the California Student Aid Commission, California State University Bakersfield, College Access Foundation of California, and the Southern San Joaquin Valley Cal-SOAP Consortium, the challenge of helping more underserved students to become academically and financially prepared to enroll and succeed in college continue to improve. It is for the Cal-SOAP students that the San Joaquin Achievers Scholarship Network was established.

Students will be awarded scholarships ranging from $500-$5,000 to attend a four-year college or university, or to attend a community college with the intention of transferring and completing a bachelor’s degree. Scholarships may not be used to attend proprietary schools (including trade or vocational schools). Recipients may use funds to cover education-related costs, including tuition, institutional fees, and supplies. In order to receive funds, a recipient must submit evidence of fulltime enrollment at an accredited educational institution, and agree to provide data necessary to study scholarship effectiveness.
