|Founded in memory of Doctor Martin Luther King, Jr. and Senator Robert F.

|Our scholars have completed at least two years of study at Contra Costa College, Diablo Valley College, or Los Medanos College, and have been accepted at a four-year university to complete their undergraduate studies. The vast majority of our scholars go on to complete their degrees on schedule.|
|During the 42 years since our founding we have granted nearly $3,000,000 in scholarships to almost 600 students. We are an all-volunteer organization with no paid staff or office space. Over 90% of all contributions go directly to students. (Please check out our financial statements). We are a qualified 501(c)(3) organization under IRS rules, so your contributions are tax-deductible. Our tax ID# is 94-1677726.|
|We also offer $4000 scholarships for graduate study to previous recipients of our undergraduate scholarships.|
Help us help these deserving scholars! Make a contribution right now, or come to our annual Scholarship Awards Dinner to meet them and see for yourself what a great investment you can make. You will be glad you did.
