Elevate Tutoring Scholarship: Open to undocumented college students with DACA in the San Francisco Bay Area, CA


Students accepted into the Elevate Tutoring program will receive a $5,500 scholarship ($26.50/hour), 55 hours of classroom training, and 155 hours of tutoring experience.  The program starts with three weeks of intensive training (18 hours total), then tutors transition to a standard schedule that includes 75% tutoring and 25% training. Scholarships are distributed throughout the year, and tutors must complete the full allotment of training and tutoring to receive the full scholarship amount.  As part of your experience, you will work to develop and improve their tutoring skills, as well as have the unique opportunity to be a mentor for in-need middle and high school students.

Applicants must be:

1) a financially underprivileged college student with at least 1.5 years of college remaining
2) able to commit at least 6 hours/week from the start of training through approximately one academic year (sometimes a little more)
3) comfortable with math (at least to the level of Algebra) and/or science (General Science, Biology, Chemistry or Physics)

In addition, the ideal applicant is academically strong, lives close to Santa Clara/San Jose (training and tutoring session will be held in this area), and is interested in teaching and giving back to the community. Students do not need to be math/science experts to apply.  Note: Applicants who make it to the interview stage will be asked to provide employment and family tax information to verify financial need.

The deadline to apply is April 29, 2016
