Scholarships provide students with opportunities to attend college, advance their knowledge and skills for workforce preparedness, and help them prepare for both academic opportunities and financial challenges after transfer.
About one in five students require financial aid; and as Foothill positions itself to build greater access to STEM education and technical careers for underserved populations, scholarships become ever more important for these students.
The scholarships focus on academically talented, financially needy students working to transfer to a 4-year university to complete an undergraduate degree in an engineering, math or science major.
A major challenge for many students at Foothill College, especially students who are financially disadvantaged, is the need to work many hours to support themselves and/or their family. The demanding academic load of a STEM major only adds to the challenge.
You can apply for Foothill College sponsored scholarships and scholarships offered through outside organizations.
Please check back in October for listing for the 2020-2021 academica year.
