In honor of Robbie Engelmann, a beloved mother, gifted therapist, teacher, and advocate of the under-served, the Tutor Corps Foundation awards scholarships to provide a year of complementary tutoring for lower income young women. The scholarship recipients will meet once a week with a tutor to receive consistent academic support along with mentoring to build confidence and self-esteem.
Applicants must be female students, live in the Bay Area or Los Angeles, be in 5th through 12th grade, demonstrate an academic need for tutoring and be recommended by a teacher and parent. Applicants also need to meet the income criteria below and provide income verification (form 1040 from last year if employed).
Criteria for Maximum Annual Household Income:
Household size of 2 – $86,000
Household size of 3 – $97,000
Household size of 4 – $108,000
Household size of 5 – $119,000
Household size of 6 – $128,000
Scholarship recipients commit to meeting with a tutor on a regular basis every week that school is in session. If a student misses more than three meetings in a year she may lose the scholarship. The Tutor Corps Foundation also expects the sponsors of the student (parent(s) and teacher) to communicate with the tutor at least once per month regarding student progress. Students and parents must agree to submit grades and progress reports to the Tutor Corps Foundation to help assess academic progress.
