Excerpt from JCYC Up Close Summer 2019 On June 6th, JCYC proudly awarded $50,000 worth of scholarships to middle and high school students throughout San Francisco and San Mateo County in the form of 529 savings plans and college scholarships! These scholarship awards were distributed during our 3rd Annual JCYC Scholarship Programs Ceremony, which was held at the African American Art & Culture Complex in San Francisco. Scholarships were awarded to 40 of JCYC’s outstanding program participants based on their academic achievement, community involvement, and financial need.  JCYC’s decision to establish this scholarship program was motivated by the unfortunate reality that the cost of attending college continues to be a major barrier for students, particularly those from low-income families who are hoping to be the first from their family to attend college. Today’s California college students graduate with an average of more than $20,000 in student debt, where Californians hold about one-tenth of the nation’s $1.5 trillion in student loan debt. This total has doubled in the last decade! Studies also show that many students even struggle to afford food and housing – at UC, Cal State and community colleges, housing and other non-tuition expenses make up the majority of the cost of attendance. This has led to a national trend, where less than half of all high school students enroll and complete college, which has significantly widened the gap between the earning power of a college graduate and those who have only completed high school. Today, a college graduate on average can expect to earn close to $1 million more over their lifetime than a high school graduate! JCYC hopes to continue expanding this scholarship program through funds raised from the 9th Annual SF Aloha Run on September 22, 2019.
