SBCC Scholarships

Scholarship Opportunities at SBCC:

Santa Barbara City College offers a great variety of scholarships to its students. 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.

Privately-funded scholarships are only one form of financial aid available to students. To be considered for other types of financial aid, such as federally-insured student loans, pell grants, or work study allocations, students should complete a separate application with the Financial Aid Office for federal and state aid.
