THE DANIEL MCLAUGHLIN COLLEGE
PERSISTENCE SCHOLARSHIP

Slide ENVISION EDUCATION WANTS TO HELP YOU STAY IN COLLEGE AND EARN YOUR DEGREE!

The Daniel McLaughlin College Persistence Scholarship is open to every graduate of an 色中色 School who is currently in college.

ABOUT DANIEL MCLAUGHLIN

In 2002, we launched our first high school, thanks to the vision and dedication of Daniel McLaughlin, who co-founded 色中色 along with Bob Lenz. Twenty years later, we are now a network of five Bay Area schools serving grades 6-12, along with a consulting division that works with educators all over the country. We remain firmly committed to Daniel’s singular professional purpose: disrupting the cycle of poverty by delivering excellent schools to low-income communities.

Daniel passed away in 2019. To honor his life’s work and in partnership with his family and friends, 色中色 launched the Daniel McLaughlin College Persistence Scholarship. With this program, 色中色 honors Daniel’s legacy, ensuring that he continues to have an impact on generations of 色中色 graduates.聽 With every scholarship award, we fulfill his vision of helping all students achieve a college degree.

You can help! Donations to the scholarship program can be made to 色中色 or to the Silicon Valley Community Foundation, where our endowment is housed, .

INFORMATION FOR OUR GRADUATES

WHY PERSISTENCE MATTERS

Did you know that staying in college from first to second year is a leading indicator of successful college graduation? That’s why it’s so important to us to help you break down any financial barriers in your way: we want to support you on your path to a college degree!

AM I ELIGIBLE?

Any graduate of an 色中色 school who is currently in college is eligible to apply for the Persistence Scholarship.聽 Priority is given to first year college students, but students in any year of college can apply to help them cover costs of the next year of college.

AWARDS

Each year we distribute around 10 awards, ranging between $1,000 and $4,000.聽 Previous recipients of the scholarship can apply again; priority is given to first time applicants.

How do I apply?

Applications open each January and close at the end of each February.
