In order to encourage the ongoing pursuit of higher education in the Colombo Club community, the Colombo Club and Ladies Auxiliary annually award financial scholarships. These scholarships are available for graduating seniors who are children or grandchildren of Club or Auxiliary members in good standing.
Students must submit an application to the committee, and must include grade transcripts, essays, letters of recommendation, extracurricular activities, and community service. The Scholarship committee evaluates the five criteria based on a point system and interviews each applicant. The students with the highest point totals are awarded scholarships.
Written applications may be submitted to:
The Colombo Club
Attn: Scholarship Fund Committee

Oakland, CA 94618
Applications must be received by March 31, 2021 to be considered.
