Dear Friend of Oakland International High School,
From our little corner in Oakland to across the nation, our year has been met with many challenges; however, we have found so many reasons to rise up and persist. During this stressful time of year when seniors are deciding which colleges they can afford to attend next year, one thing that continues to inspire us is the ongoing support we get from our community and friends.
Your contributions to our annual Opening Doors Scholarship Fund have been instrumental to the lives of all the scholarship recipients as they begin their journey to accessing higher education with very limited resources.
It was with our community's support that we have been able to sustain our Opening Doors Scholarship program at OIHS and even double the number of recipients last year from three to six! (Click here for an update on how last year's scholarship recipients are doing as freshmen.)
We hope you consider donating to our Opening Doors Scholarship Fund this year sometime between May 1-15. All money raised during these two weeks goes directly to help our 2018 recipients realize their college dreams and forever alter the trajectory of their lives and the lives of their future children and family.

What Your Support Means to our Students
Watch the short video below (made by an OIHS alum!) to see the impact that an "Opening Doors" scholarship has had on one of our graduates from the Class of 2016. The scholarships will be announced and presented to the recipients on Wednesday, May 30, 2018 at the graduation ceremony of the Class of 2018.
