About the Scholarship Program

City of Commerce Scholarship Program

Thank you for your interest in the City of Commerce Scholarship Program. The Commerce City Council dedicates itself to promote education in the community and is happy to help make a college education more available to you. Studies indicate that a college education helps adults to earn more. According to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics,earnings for both males and females increase with education. Among people age 25 years and older, median weekly earnings generally increase with greater levels of educational attainment. In 2016, those with less than a high school diploma had the lowest median weekly earnings,at $504. Earnings were highest for people with at least a bachelor's degree--$1,156 for those with a bachelor's degree, $1,380 for those with a master's degree, $1,745 for those with a professional degree,and $1,664 for those with a doctoral degree.
