Private Scholarships


Students can apply for private scholarships prior to being admitted. However, in order to be considered for the many scholarships Santa Barbara City College offers its students, an admissions application must be completed first.

While many scholarships require the satisfactory completion of a minimum of 12 units of course work per semester at SBCC, others are open to incoming high school students attending SBCC in the Fall, as well as current SBCC students that will be transferring the following year.

Scholarships are awarded based upon academic achievement and/or financial need. At SBCC, scholarships are funded by gifts and endowments from private individuals, corporations, community organizations, and foundations. 

Generally, they are administered through the Foundation for SBCC, the unit of the College which raises and manages private scholarship funds for SBCC students.
