Scholarship Program

Message from the Program Coordinator

As a scholarship recipient and community college transfer student, I know first-hand the impact receiving a scholarship can make on a student’s life. Scholarships are the culmination of academic merit and financial need made possible due to the extraordinary generosity of donors. A special thank you to all of our wonderful community partners and donors who help Santa Ana College students reach their educational dreams. I look forward to continuing to work with students, donors, and community members to transform access to higher education for students at Santa Ana College.
