The foundation’s 2018-2019 scholarship application is available online now until Feb. 1 at 2:00 p.m.

Using the single online application, students can apply to more than 100 types of scholarships with awards generally ranging from $1,000 to $5,000. Awards are granted for four-year universities, two-year colleges, graduate, and trade/vocational schools.

“With the cost of higher education on the rise, scholarship support is more important than ever,” shared Danielle Valenciano, director of community scholarships for the foundation. “Thanks to the generosity of local donors through our community scholarship program, we are removing one of the critical barriers to entry for local families and providing more San Diegans with the opportunity to pursue higher education.”

The scholarship program is the largest in the region outside of the university system . Since 1997, the program has awarded more than $28.7 million to thousands of students.
