Since 1997, $36 million has been awarded to thousands of students who help fuel our San Diego economy – making our program the largest private non-university scholarship provider in San Diego County.
Additionally, The San Diego Foundation continues to find ways to increase educational opportunity and attainment for local students, particularly from underserved communities. Made possible through a partnership with the College futures Foundation and generous contributions of donors who are passionate about education, the Community Scholars Initiative helps hundreds more low-income and first-generation students prepare for, pay for and persist through college.
Scholarships are available for: Graduating high school seniors, undergraduates, graduate, medical and professional school students and adult re-entry students who are attending community colleges, four-year universities, career/technical schools, teaching credential programs and graduate, medical or professional schools in the United States.
