Founded in 1991, Berkeley Community Scholars (BCS), (formerly Berkeley Community Fund – BCF) focuses on social and economic justice issues and the common good. In 2007, the organization narrowed its focus to exclusively provide college scholarship and college success support for academically talented and resilient Berkeley high school students attending four-year colleges and universities. In 2017, BCS extended that support to Berkeley students attending Berkeley City College through the Community College High Hopes Program.
Since 2008, BCS has awarded nearly $4 million in scholarships to motivated and promising Berkeley high school graduates, all of whom have demonstrated great resilience in overcoming early life challenges.
The Community College Success Advisor (CCSA) plays a critical role in supporting our program. The CCSA begins their role by working with students who begin their college journey at a community college. The CCSA reports to the Executive Director (ED). During 2020, the CCSA will work 80% of their time supporting Community College Scholars and 20% supporting Community College Scholars for transfer. The percentages will change each year as more community college students transfer to complete their bachelor’s degree. This is a full time, exempt position with a comprehensive benefits package.
