Carol Phan Memorial College Scholarship

See all of our Scholarship Winners


A lasting legacy to our lovely, talented, intelligent daughter and friend. We love you Carol.

The Carol Phan Memorial College Scholarship is not an ordinary scholarship given by some corporation.

We loved Carol, and Carol’s mom gives the money every year for this scholarship.

As such, your application must show the judges (and us) your passion and creativity at a level of effort that communicates to us that you will value being awarded this scholarship.

We don’t award the scholarship then forget about you. You become part of the “scholarship family” and we stay in touch during college and long after graduation……as such, we hope that you will blog twice in four years: Once to let future college students know about your first semester experiences, and lastly after graduation.

Scholarship Amount and Graduating Winners:

We award one $1,500 Carol Phan College Scholarship per year to a deserving Tracy High IB/Ag Sci student.

Below is an example of a winning submission:

Scholarship Submission:


What is your Passion?

To Submit an Application:

You must have a total weighted 3.5 GPA, or above, and have been accepted, or applied, to a 4 year college or university.

The judging is based on:

–> Effort / Quality of your submission

–> Creativity of your submission

–> Does your Passion show in your submission?

Here are links to some winning submissions:

Think outside the box, be creative, go wild…..make a video or a short movie, draw your passion (see Amy’s winning submission), sing your poem (See Yash’s winning submission), show us the solution to a sticky math problem, design some cool software (see Inyoung’s program), write a funny resume (see Nathan’s winning submission), write fiction (see Michelle’s winning entry)… short……use your imagination!

If you are going to write an essay, be sure to include pictures, diagrams, drawings, or even a video (the judges see your entry online) to add to the creative / informational / passionate impact of your essay.
