Established to provide scholarship support to students graduating from Coast Union or Paso Robles High School, the Feb. 10 deadline to apply for the Yeager Science Scholarship is quickly approaching.

"This scholarship is life-changing," scholarship program associate Angela Hollander said. "Even with outreach through the Counseling Department and personal contacts I have at the high school, we only had two eligible applicants last year, yet 125 Paso Robles High School graduates went on to study at Cuesta."

The four-year scholarship's purpose is to make a positive difference in the life of the recipient and thereby also in the larger society. The Yeager scholarship is targeted at students intending to major in the physical sciences and related fields. The scholarship is especially geared towards students who, because of being economically or culturally disadvantaged, would find attending college difficult or unlikely without the encouragement and financial help provided by financial assistance.

To be eligible for the Yeager Science Scholarship, all applicants must be a member of the current graduating class of Coast Union or Paso Robles High School and must demonstrate financial need. Applicant's academic record and faculty opinion of applicant should indicate likely success in college. Extracurricular activity, community service and leadership do not factor into award decision process.
