Most awards range from $1,000 to $5,000, and the foundation has distributed $26 million in scholarships over the past 20 years.
The foundation’s 2017-2018 scholarship application is available online until Feb. 1 at 2 p.m.
Scholarships are available to high school students, current college students, graduate students and adult re-entry students.
“While many individuals choose to enter the workforce immediately, we want to give everyone the opportunity to pursue higher education if they so choose,” said Kathlyn Mead, president and CEO of the foundation. “The San Diego Foundation Community Scholarship Program strives to ensure the cost of college is not a limiting factor to academic success.”
For more than 40 years, the foundation and its donors have granted more than $1 billion for charitable purposes in the San Diego region.
