Stipend Oportunities

Weekly

For the months April-June participants have the opportunity to earn up to $15 a week! Each week students participate in one Zoom activity and continue progress in their OnTrack program. These activities may include virtual museum tours, yoga, origami, virtual college tours, and more! Students must complete the form related to the Zoom activity, if provided. Attendance will be monitored. The scheduled Zoom activity times are as follows:

  • Monday: 2:30 - 3:00 pm
  • Tuesday: 10:30 - 11:30 am
  • Wednesday: 2:30 - 3:00 pm
  • Thursday 10:30 - 11:30 am

Seniors

To receive one $60 stipend, you must email us (upwardbound@siskiyous.edu) stating where you plan to sign up for classes and if you will live on campus or not. Additionally, you must attach copy of your Student Aid Report (SAR) from FAFSA.

College Exploration

One of the coolest Zoom activities available is the Virtual College Tours. This weekly activity will include participating in a college tour via Zoom and filling out the accompanying questionnaire, found here. We will also be using the questionnaire to gauge interest for future in-person tours. Every week, a schedule of activities will be sent out that will include which campuses we will be touring that week.

Additionally, you could attend 5 sessions of the Parks Online Resources for Teachers and Students (PORTS) program from CA State Parks. PORTS provides FREE live, interactive videoconference programs to K-12 students. You can connect with a live ranger and experience the California State Parks from your own home! For more information about PORTS, click here. After you complete each session, you must complete this form in order to receive credit.
