Carla Baku, who graduated from College of the Redwoods this year, has won a scholarship from the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation.

She will use the money to pay for Stanford University.

Foundation scholarships can total up to $30,000 per year for up to three years, although the amount and duration of the scholarships vary for each student, according to the cost of attendance at the school, the length of the program, and other grants and scholarships received.

The scholarships are awarded to 50 high-achieving, low-income students from community or two-year colleges.
