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 is dedicated to promoting education in the community and is happy to help make a college education more accessible to you. Studies indicate that a college education helps adults to earn more. According to the National Center for Education statistics, for both males and females, earnings increase with education. In 2002, male college graduates earned 65 percent more than those with only a high school diploma. Females with a bachelor's degree or higher earned 71 percent more than those with only a high school diploma.
