Due to the success of the Oakland Schools Education Foundation (OSEF)’s annual Scholarships for Success program in 2017, $50,000 in scholarship money will soon be awarded to students who attend Oakland Schools Technical Campuses.

OSEF proudly offers the Scholarships for Success program to help ensure students at the Oakland Schools Technical Campuses can take the next step in their education, whether it is at a college/university, trade school or apprenticeship program.

“These scholarships are integral to assisting many of our technical campus students with continuing their education after high school,” said Dr. Wanda Cook Robinson, vice president of OSEF and Oakland Schools superintendent.

Due to the success of OSEF’s annual Scholarships for Success Gala Dinner in April 2017, OSEF will be awarding the following scholarships:

  • One $7,500 scholarship
  • Four $5,000 scholarships
  • Four $2,500 scholarships
  • Eight $1,000 scholarships
  • Nine $500 scholarships

Valid students must apply by Friday, Jan. 12 by visiting https://ostconline.com/CurrentStudents/Pages/Scholarships.aspx.

These scholarships will be presented to the winners at an awards breakfast on Monday, Feb. 26, 2018 at Oakland Schools, 2111 Pontiac Lake Road, Waterford, 48328.
