MiraCosta College Foundation supports many scholarships throughout the fall and spring semesters. A majority of the scholarships are for continuing MiraCosta students, but there are also scholarships for MiraCosta students transferring to 4-year institutions and graduating high school seniors planning to enroll for the fall semester. Students may be eligible for scholarships based on their financial need, academic achievement, volunteer service, a specific major or certificate program, or as a continuing MiraCosta student. Click the link MiraCosta Scholarships Available and review the eligibility criteria and deadline dates. Be sure to check the website often for new scholarship opportunities.
Other Scholarships Available link contains scholarships from outside third-party sources, and students can apply for as many scholarships as they are eligible. Students should review the criteria carefully and note the deadline dates before applying. This page is updated frequently throughout the semester with new scholarships.
The Scholarship Tips & Websites page has helpful information and procedures on how to complete a scholarship application, writing personal statement essays, asking for a letter of recommendation, template of a Thank You letter, etc., plus links to large scholarship websites.
