One of California’s leading college success nonprofits, 10,000 Degrees helps students from low-income backgrounds get to and through college. Thanks to comprehensive personal support, financial aid management, and academic counseling, more than 80% of 10,000 Degrees students earn Bachelor’s degrees, compared to 31% of their peers nationally. For those who start at community college, 10,000 Degrees students transfer to and graduate from four-year colleges at three times the rate of their peers. Because we believe all students can succeed, unlike most other college success organizations, there is no GPA requirement for students applying to 10,000 Degrees programs.
We are looking for a highly motivated and detail oriented individual to support our growing scholarship program. 10,000 Degrees alumni are encouraged to apply.
The Scholarship Coordinator works closely with the Scholarship Director and another Scholarship Coordinator to ensure that scholarship applications, awards, modifications and payments are processed in a timely, efficient manner. The Scholarship Coordinator also communicates with scholarship recipients, parents, and donors to answer any questions and provide support throughout the scholarship process.
Normal hours: Weekdays 9 AM to 5 PM, occasional weekends
10,000 Degrees offers a competitive salary and a generous benefits package, including medical and dental insurance, 401(k), 15-day vacation plan, 10 paid holidays, and sick leave.
