The Bright Futures Scholarship Fund was established in 2010 by Silicon Valley Community Foundation to provide additional scholarship opportunities to the many worthy applicants that seek funding each year. Each year SVCF's scholarship programs receive an average of 600 requests; unfortunately, because the number of scholarships awarded is determined by the amount of funds available, hundreds of bright, promising students are turned down each year. The selection committee looks for students showing academic excellence whose educational opportunities will be increased by financial assistance. In addition, the selection committee will take into consideration the overall quality of the personal statement. Special consideration will be given to working students and those pursuing a teaching or master's degree with an emphasis in the teaching of mathematics.
