The The Frank H. Buck Scholarship is a scholarship offered by the Frank H. and Eva B. Buck Foundation. The scholarship awards approximately twelve to fifteen students scholarships each year. These scholarships are expected to supplement any other financial aid that may be awarded to the recipient so that all the ordinary costs of an education are covered.
The mission of the Buck Foundation is to support education in all of its aspects. They achieve this through the scholarship program which provides scholarship support to students chosen from the six counties that were the congressional district served by Frank H. Buck in the 72nd through 76th United States Congresses (1932-42) - Contra Costa, Napa, Sacramento, San Joaquin, Solano and Yolo. The foundation also provide grant support to educational institutions, libraries and other nonprofit organizations in support of their goals.
As of 2008[update], the Buck Foundation has provided scholarship support to more than 259 students from within its geographic area. These students have attended colleges and universities throughout the United States, as well as international educational institutions. They have studied a broad range of fields – the arts, sciences, liberal arts, economics, government, law, medicine, management – and are now making a positive contribution to society and their communities.
