The Matt’s Climb Scholarship is a one-time non-academic award for a Cypress Charter High School student to attend Camp Unalayee for a wilderness adventure.
There is no open application process. For more information email Robin Larsen or call her at 831.662.2061.
We use an online application. Paper applications are not accepted.
Read each description in Our Scholarships and the information on this page. Then click "Apply Now".
Step 1: Log In
Select the "Create New Account" button to register as a new applicant. Once you fill out the required fields and choose a password, you’ll be able to start the application.
Step 2: Student and Family Data
Your parent or guardian needs to help you complete the financial data section of the application.
Step 3: Narrative Responses
You’ll be asked to share your interests and experiences that have shaped your academic and/or career pursuits.
Step 4: Upload Documents
Complete applications must include the following documents uploaded by schools. Students must provide an email address to the appropriate individual for the school to provide the following:
> Your name
> School's name
> Number of credits earned in each term
> Grade received for each course
Please note: If you attended more than one high school and your current transcripts do not list the courses and credits you received from previous schools, you must include transcripts from those schools. If you're currently in a post-secondary institution, please include all transcripts since you graduated from high school.
All applications must be submitted electronically by 8:00 a.m. PST, on Friday, February 3, 2017.
Use the "Save Application" button at the bottom of the online application form.
Next time you log in, click "Edit Application" from the home screen to continue working. Don't try to access your saved draft by clicking "Apply". That link is only for starting new applications.
If you are on a page without activity for longer than 90 minutes, you'll be logged off for security reasons.
If you submit your application in error or if changes need to be made to it, email Nallely Martinez at the Community Foundation or call her for help at 831.662.2071.
Our system can create a PDF copy of the entire application including all uploaded documents.
Once you’ve submitted your application, click “View Application” from the Dashboard, and click “Application Packet” at the top of the page. This generates the PDF, which you can save and print for your records.
The online system will not allow incomplete applications to be submitted. If you make errors, they'll be displayed in red and must be corrected before proceeding.
After submitting your application, you’ll see a confirmation page, and you’ll be sent an automatic email from "CFSCC Application Administrator" (firstname.lastname@example.org) confirming that your application has been received.
Nallely Martinez (NMartinez@cfscc.org) or Jim Brown (JMBrown@cfscc.org) may also email you directly with questions. To ensure their emails reach you, please add these three contacts to your email address book.
If in doubt, you can always refer to your Dashboard in our system to see the state of your application.
