Apply for Fall Scholarships

This article appeared in the Feb. 19, 2019, issue of the student newsletter.

It's time to start thinking about the Fall semester now, which means it's time to fill out a scholarship application. 

The DCCCD Foundation offers more than 300 scholarships yearly, and myScholarships is designed to help you get the opportunity to win as many as possible. Get started as early as you can because the Fall scholarships application opens March 1. The application period ends June 1. 

And don't forget, the Summer application is currently open through April 1! 

The Application 

Don't be intimidated by how many scholarships are available. You only need to fill out one secure application. Here's how it works: 

  • Visit myScholarships on the Foundation website and fill out the online scholarship application. Once you've finished the application, you'll automatically be matched to scholarships you're eligible for.
  • Some scholarships may require more information beyond eligibility, such as an essay or answers to supplemental questions. You'll know which scholarships, though, and you can submit that information directly through the online form.
  • You can check on the status of your scholarship application at any time. 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'll also be notified through email. 

Making Changes 

If you want to make changes to your general application after you submit it, contact the Admissions/Registrar's Office at your college.
