Eureka, United States- California


University description (as per official university website)

CR History

The Redwoods Community College District was formed January 14, 1964, by an election of the people of Humboldt County. A bond issue of $3,600,000 was passed for the initial construction phase of the college.

Instruction began in 1965 and continued into 1967 at Eureka High School. Initially 45 majors were offered, 15 of which were technical-vocational. Over 1,800 students registered at the College in 1965-66.

The founding President/Superintendent, Dr. Eugene J. Portugal, supervised a full-time faculty and administrative staff of 31 with 85 part-time instructors.

In May 1975, the residents of coastal Mendocino County voted for annexation to the District. Del Norte County joined the Redwoods' District in July of 1978, completing the District's current service areas of Humboldt County, coastal Mendocino County, Del Norte County and a portion of Trinity County.

General Information and Additional Resources

Scholarship categories:

College of the Redwoods scholarships: Those scholarships made available by charitable contributions to College of the Redwoods, e.g., individuals, foundations, corporations, and organizations. The identification, selection, and awarding of CR scholarships varies according to the specific terms of each scholarship.

Non-College of the Redwoods scholarships (external scholarships): Those awarded by organizations, corporations, and foundations outside of College of the Redwoods which establish their own guidelines and procedures for applications, selections, and awards. The College does not maintain extensive information about these scholarships. Potential applicants are encouraged to independently research availability and to contact the sponsors directly.
