Silicon Valley Community Foundation/Ralph Hale and Martha L. Ruppert Educational Scholarship

The Ruppert Educational Grant Program was established through a trust and bequest agreement by Ralph Hale Ruppert and Lenore Martha Ruppert in memory of their mothers, Nellie Hale Ruppert and Amanda Miller Edwards. The program is designed to assist young people who have financial need and are willing to help themselves. Scholarships are awarded to "late bloomers" - those students who show academic promise and improvement during the last years of high school or in the first few years of college, but are unlikely to receive other scholarships because of their low GPAs.
