How important is a college-level education? According to research from Georgetown University, very important.
Georgetown experts estimate that 63 percent of all job openings by 2018 will require workers with at least some college education.
This is why, now more than ever, scholarship programs such as those through the University system and The San Diego Foundation Community Scholarship Program are critical for our youth and the future of San Diego’s economy.

Supporting Hundreds of Students
Thanks to a long list of local philanthropists, The San Diego Foundation Community Scholarship Program is the largest non-university scholarship program in the San Diego region.
Each year, millions of dollars are distributed to hundreds of students pursuing higher education. This year, we had one of our most successful years in history.
