Riverside County Office of Education Student Success Fund

The mission of this award is to support purchasing items which are crucial to your academic and career success. Award funding can be used to purchase items such as a desk, school supplies, printer, technology, college fees, and initial costs for new employment. The Student Success Fund application requires a brief essay that explains your request and current needs to ensure you are academically successful so that the Scholarship Committee can gain an understanding of why these items or resources would be beneficial to your success as a high school or college student.
