Dear Students:

Welcome to our new students, and, to our continuing students, welcome back to Fall Semester 2014! As you know, college is just as expensive in 2014 as it was in 2013, and many supporters of educational excellence both within and outside of San Diego City College have generously donated to our many scholarship funds to help our students to pursue their educational dreams! Throughout the year, the San Diego City College Foundation and the San Diego City College Office of Student Affairs offer scholarships to qualified students from San Diego City College and the Educational Cultural Complex (ECC).

Student Affairs is feverishly working with the district web designers to release a great new on-line application for scholarships in 2014-2015, so we ask that you please be patient a little longer for the release of the new scholarships cycle. We promise it will be worth it! In the meantime, please direct your attention to a few places on our scholarships site for those who can’t wait to apply for some scholarships now.

Simply click the link at the right that says SCHOLARSHIP LIST to see last year’s available internal scholarships, and after you click SCHOLARSHIP LIST be sure to click the link underneath it that says OUTSIDE SCHOLARSHIPS to see a list of additional scholarships that are being offered to students by our community supporters. If you need help with your application click the link to the right that says SCHOLARSHIP WORKSHOP to see the PowerPoint presentation from the 2 scholarship workshops we presented last semester. Student Affairs is planning more scholarship workshops in the fall semester to help you to find more scholarships and apply for them.

Another place to learn about new scholarships is the Facebook page, sdccscholarships. See the link below and “like” the page to have new scholarships roll through your Facebook stream. When the application and scholarships are ready we will announce on the Facebook page also.

Finally, take a look at the SCHOLARSHIPS WEBSITES click to the right to find websites that will help you to do a comprehensive search to find scholarships across the country for which you qualify.
