The Process

YOC members apply for a scholarship online, and the applications are reviewed by our Scholarship Committee. A select group goes through an interview process. After interviews close, a final review process takes place and scholarship recipients are notified. Each year we hold a scholarship luncheon in Oakland, CA in July.
