BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — Graduating seniors from Shafter High School with at least a 2.5 GPA may qualify for a $250 City of Shafter - Bakersfield College Scholarship.

To apply, students must be enrolled in one fall semester course offered at a Shafter community location and students must complete the application on the BC website by June 30, 2020.

“BC’s partners at the City of Shafter, including the Shafter City Council and David Franz, are making education a priority for future generations. Together, we are leveling out the playing field for students living in rural Kern County,” said Director of Rural Initiatives, Abel Guzman.
