Graduate Success Inaugural Scholarships

TCF’s Graduate Success Program awarded its first round of strategic, needs-based scholarships to 40 students from Riverside and San Bernardino school districts to pursue their college dreams.

In 2017, TCF collaborated with the College Futures Foundation to address low graduation rates in the Inland Empire. The result of this collaboration was Graduate Success, a strategy and fund designed to increase a student’s potential to access, thrive, and succeed in higher education by providing need-based scholarships and college preparation services.

Raylyna Aguiar, one of this year’s Graduate Success scholarship recipients, knows that access to education is important. “Personally, I knew that going to a big university would overwhelm me and that private school would best benefit me to get a better education,” says Aguiar. “Private schools are extremely expensive, but this scholarship is helping me by reducing the total loan amount I would have to pay back.” Raylyna will attend California Baptist University and is planning to major in Criminal Justice with a minor in Psychology. 

Research shows that students awarded scholarships based on financial need stay in college and graduate at rates similar to other students in the same institutions. “Everyone deserves a chance to attend college, but many lack the means to do so,” said Celia Cudiamat, Senior Vice President of Grants and Community Impact. “This strategy enables us to strengthen our commitment to providing more need-based scholarships to low-income students, many of who will be the first in their families to attend college.”
