Alameda Contra Costa Links Scholarship Opportunities
The Philanthropic Committee of the Alameda Contra Costa Links is pleased to present the following scholarship opportunities for high school seniors and college students:
Ann C. Cato Scholarship
Ann C. Cato played an integral part in the founding and organization of the Alameda Contra Costa Innovators, the interest group for the Alameda Contra Costa Chapter of The Links, Incorporated. Her untimely death occurred prior to the chartering of the Alameda Contra Costa Links. In her memory, Alameda Contra Costa Links established the Ann C. Cato Scholarship Fund, whereby a scholarship will be presented each year to a student who is majoring in or intending to major in the teaching or therapist field.
The Alameda Contra Costa Links created the Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) Scholarship to promote attendance and improve graduation rates at HBCUs, and encourage studies in the fields of science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM).
Developing the pipeline for African American youth to enter the STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) disciplines is an important goal for the Alameda Contra Costa Chapter of The Links, Inc. This STEAM scholarship was created to encourage and financially support those students who seek an education and ultimately a career in these disciplines.
