LoanMart and the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes have been working together to offer local California high school students financial opportunities through scholarships ever since 2013. Every year since their partnership, there have been three $1,000 scholarships for three different high school students.
What Are the Qualifications for the High School Student Scholarships?
In order to qualify for the scholarship, the high-school student must actively pursue higher education or training and must demonstrate their effort to better their community outside of school hours. LoanMart also considers the students’ academic achievement, leadership, and any other additional accomplishments.
Keep in mind that the student must be a US citizen, graduating from a local high school, and must be a current resident of San Bernardino County.
What Does the Application Process for the LoanMart and Rancho Cucamonga Quakes High School Student Scholarship Look Like?
The application process for this scholarship is simple. It involves a statement of 300 words explaining why an applicant thinks they deserve to win the scholarship, an official high school transcript, 1-2 letters of recommendation from a person of authority in the applicant’s life, and a filled out application.
What Are Other Ways That LoanMart and the Cucamonga Quakes Partner Up to Give Back to the Local Community?
In addition to the annual student scholarships, LoanMart has a Financial Literacy Awareness Scholarship, which helps communities improve their literacy awareness. This scholarship opportunity is worth $2,000.
LoanMart also funds the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes strikeout program—each time the opposing team gets a strikeout, LoanMart donates $5 to the Rancho Cucamonga Community and Arts Foundation. Over the years, this has amounted to several thousands of dollars to the foundation.
In the past, LoanMart and the Quakes have donated to the Autism Society, and they are constantly advocating for autism awareness and support. They have also donated medical equipment for young baseball players, to prevent death/complications from heart related injuries that can happen on the field.
