City of Commerce Scholarship Program
A Brief History:
The City of Commerce Community Outreach Program began the Scholarship Program in 1980. In its earliest years, donations were given from local civic organizations and service clubs. Scholarships ranging from $50-$300 were awarded. The goal was, and still is to help Commerce residents to build foundation for their futures.
The program proved to be very successful and well received. Before long, contributions began coming in from the business community, as well as from civic and service organizations and individuals. Scholarships increased both in size of the award, and in number of awards presented. In 2011, scholarships ranging from $250-$5,000 were awarded to 53 Commerce residents.
