About the Scholarship Program

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. 

In an annual program, Santa Ana College offers over $500,000 in scholarships to students enrolled in classes for the fall and spring semesters of each academic year. Scholarships are available for students continuing at Santa Ana College as well as  transferring as juniors to  four-year institutions. All awards are based on receipt of funding from our donors.

Third-Party Scholarship Stewardship Fee

The Santa Ana College Foundation processes third-party, also known as one-time, scholarships. In an effort to sustain and support the costs to maintain and facilitate all transactional details related to distributing these funds to Santa Ana College Students, a 5% fee off the top of each scholarship will be assessed.
