Room & Board Scholarship

The Redwoods Room & Board Scholarship Fund supports CR students who are experiencing homelessness or who are housing insecure.  This scholarship provides semester grants so that these students can live in CR's residence halls and have a meal plan in the cafeteria.  The goal is to ensure these students have the opportunity to focus on their education rather than on their daily survival. 

College of the Redwoods was the first college in the nation to provide on campus housing and meal plans for its students experiencing housing insecurity or homelessness.
