Rise Above

OCC believes in its students who struggle with learning challenges, and sees their potential for success. The new Empowered to Rise Above Scholarship, created by staff champions Kristine Borrayo and Jessica Lizardi, provides a new way to empower these students with the support they need.

You can help ensure that no student with a learning challenge struggles to reach their goals at OCC due to financial hardship.

Each $500 we raise represents one scholarship that roughly covers the cost of a class and textbooks. Your gift today in any amount will ensure that students with a diagnosed learning challenge will have every opportunity to realize their potential. Please give as generously as you can at the level that is right for you. Simply complete the form below.
