Silicon Valley Community Foundation/Hazel Reed Baumeister Scholarship Program

This program was established in 2001 through the Trust of Mrs. Hazel Reed Baumeister, a longtime resident of Burlingame. Mrs. Baumeister attended business school and worked from 1933 to 1939 as confidential executive secretary to United States Senator Pat McCarran of Nevada. The purpose of the scholarship, established in her memory, is to support high school graduates of high academic achievement who would be unable to pursue higher education without financial assistance. The selection committee looks for academic promise, documented perseverance in activities outside the classroom, the quality of the personal statement and personal characteristics such as honesty, good judgment and commitment to serving the community. Students may apply to both the Crain Educational Grant Program and the Hazel Reed Baumeister Scholarship Program, but may receive only one of these scholarships. Eligibility Requirements Demonstrated community involvement over a period of several years Minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale Demonstrated financial hardship Graduating high school senior or graduate of a public or private high school in San Mateo County or Santa Clara County Planning to enroll or currently enrolled in a four-year college or university as a full-time student United States citizen.
