CMC Foundation Accepting Applications For The Roy Greenleaf, Jr. Scholarship.

    December 11, 2013

    The Copper Mountain College Foundation is now accepting applications for the Roy Greenleaf, Jr. Scholarship for the 2014-2015 school year.

    The Annual Greenleaf Scholarship will be awarded to a local high school senior who demonstrates a strong determination to succeed, an abiding desire to help others, and an interest in serving the Morongo Basin upon completion of their education. Academic excellence is not the primary criterion of the scholarship.  Rather, Mr. Greenleaf believed that “average” deserving students should have an equal chance at higher education.  The Greenleaf Scholarship pays for tuition, books, fees and standard living expenses for a graduating senior from a Morongo Basin high school. The selected senior is expected to enter Copper Mountain College in the fall of 2014 and earn a degree within two years. The scholarship continues to pay for the student to receive a baccalaureate degree at a four-year University of California or California State University institution.

    Previous Greenleaf Scholars are Jillian Burkett, 2002; Jennifer Meyers-Giddings, 2003; Catherine Cahill, 2004; Ryan O’Connell, 2005; Samantha Stephens, 2006; Tollian Waite, 2007; Geanne Weaver, 2008; Rhonda Romberg, 2009; Candace Creps, 2010; Roberto De La Cruz, 2011 and Kelly Christensen, 2013.  There were no scholars chosen in 2012 due to economic constraints.


    Application forms and additional information is available in the Counseling Offices at Morongo Basin high schools, and online at  

    Applications are due to the applicable high school Counseling Office on Wednesday, February 12, 2014 by 3 p.m.  Finalists will be interviewed and the winner announced in early March, with the remaining finalists receiving a cash award.  

    For additional information on this unique scholarship opportunity, please call the Copper Mountain College Foundation office at 760-366-3791 ext. 5012, or visit the Foundation online at
