STEM Scholarships

​​​​​​​​​​​​STEM Scholarship Opportunities​

Dozens of scholarships are available for students in the STEM fields and for all students, regardless of discipline.  Some scholarships are even prioritized for specific underrepresented populations.  There are many scholarship search engines and databases that can assist students seeking general scholarships or those limited by certain criteria.  At Santa Ana College, scholarship listings are published in November in an annual scholarship brochure and posted throughout the year on the SAC Scholarship site.  For more information on Santa Ana College scholarships, visit the Scholarship Program website​.

​​​​​​STEM Scholarships

​​Please read eligibility requirements carefully as some STEM scholarships listed require that applicants attend a four-year university.  Additional STEM scholarships are available through discipline-specific professional associations.  Please visit the Professional Associations webpage​ for a list of organizations within your designated discipline.  Again, please read eligibility requirements as the scholarships may require you to become a member of these organizations prior to applying.
