The Scholarship application must be completed online.

1) there is one scholarship for a brand new veteran student whose first term is spring 2018

International Students (students with an ‘F1’ VISA) are eligible for all scholarships for which they meet the qualifications. 

Application Process:

To access the General Application, click “Sign in” and use your college issued “W” ID and your corresponding CLASS-Web or The Zone password to login.

After you have completed your General Application and any supplemental questions, the system will automatically match you to scholarships you are eligible for based on your responses and the information from your Applicant Record.

The system may recommend additional scholarship opportunities that you may be eligible for. However additional steps must be taken to be considered for those scholarships. It is advised that you read all pages and instructions carefully in order to take advantage of all your available opportunities.
Please do not apply for scholarships for which you are not recommended for, since you do not meet the full qualifications. If you believe you should be considered, please contact the Financial Aid Office to determine if our program logic is incorrect.

Some scholarships require the applicant to demonstrate financial need; in order to be considered for those scholarships a 2017-2018 Free Application for Federal Student Aid must be submitted ( or a 2017-2018 California Dream Application ( if you are an AB540 student according to Admissions.

The “Deadline” column indicates the scholarship submission deadline.

Funds for scholarships awarded this spring will be provided during the 2018-19 academic year to help with educational expenses.

Additional scholarship opportunities may become available after you have completed the General Scholarship Application. It is your responsibility to check your Academic Works page frequently for additional scholarship opportunities that may become available.

If you are awarded a scholarship you will receive an award email sent to your college email address in early May.
