Grants and Scholarships
Grants and scholarships are free financial assistance available to fund your education.
Federal grants are funded by the federal government and awarded by the College based on our review of your financial aid application.
Individual states often have educational grants available to their residents, including Californians. Although many state grants may not be transferable to out-of-state schools, all students should check with their state government for information on available assistance.
Merit scholarships are based on academic ability, achievement, motivation, and promise. Merit scholarships are awarded for four years (8 semesters total) as long as the student maintains the minimum GPA required by the scholarship program.
Need-based scholarships differ from merit scholarships as they are not linked to academic promise, but rather to the family’s financial situation. Need-based scholarships are re-determined each year by the information you provide on your annual financial aid application. These awards are not guaranteed year-to-year.
Normally funded by private corporations and organizations, outside scholarships offer students additional assistance for college. Outside scholarships normally help students reduce the amount of loans they borrow.
