Get Ready To Fill Out Your Summer Scholarship Application

This article appeared in the Dec. 17, 2019, issue of the student newsletter.

The summer 2020 scholarship application will open on Jan. 1, which means it’s time to get familiar with the process again. You’ll have until the April 1 deadline to submit your application.

The DCCCD Foundation offers more than 300 scholarships yearly, so why not get some of that money for yourself? Here’s the simple process you need to follow to fill out your application before the April 1 deadline.

Fill Out Scholarship Applications Online

Filling out one secure online scholarship form speeds up the process for both you and the district by matching you with as many scholarship opportunities as possible.

Step One

To get started, visit myScholarships on the Foundation website and fill out the online scholarship application. Once you’ve finished the application, you’ll be automatically matched to opportunities for which you’re eligible based on the criteria you meet. This can include academic excellence, financial need, personal achievement, leadership or other factors.

Note: Your DCCCD personal, contact and academic information is imported from DCCCD’s Colleague system. To make changes or updates to the information in the imported fields, you must contact the Admissions/Registrar’s Office at the college you attend.

Step Two

Some scholarships may require more information beyond eligibility, such as an essay or answers to supplemental questions. The online scholarship application system will let you know, and you’ll be able to submit that information directly through the online form.

Step Three

Lastly, you can check the status of your scholarship application at any time. Just log in to myScholarships and click the Home tab in the upper-left corner. If you have been offered a scholarship, you will see a status update. You will also receive notification through the email address you use to log in.
