The Foundation prioritizes the applications of womxn of color, first-generation college students, immigrant students (including undocumented students), students who are in the first generation in their families to be born in the U.S., and womxn re-entering the workforce. We encourage womxn of all backgrounds and citizenship status to apply. If you are eligible and would like to apply, please contact your community college’s scholarship and financial aid office.

Students apply through their respective community colleges, and the program provides one student from each participating college with up to $20,000 in scholarships over two years. Students must be enrolled in one of the aforementioned community colleges and dedicated to enrolling in and completing the junior and senior years of their college education at a University of California campus. Award decisions are made by the Board of Directors of the Peggy and Jack Baskin Foundation based on the recommendation of the president of the applicant’s community college.
