The deadline to apply is March 2, 2018 at 4:00 p.m. To view application directions and more information on scholarships, visit Los Rios Scholarships here.

Several scholarships available through the college currently have no applicants-that means your chances of getting one may be higher than you think! It may seem like a daunting task, but it’s worth it. Take it from a SCC student and scholarship recipient Mikaela Ciofi-Huang, a single mom working full time, whose goal is to eventually be accepted to the Creative Writing Master’s program at UC Davis.

“The application process seemed overwhelming at first but was, in reality, simple. The committee member that was helping me was extremely patient. I really felt like she cared about my academic pursuit. Being a recipient of foundation scholarships will help me save up for university costs, which was the biggest reason why I couldn’t finish my BA 7 years ago. it’s definitely a privilege worth taking advantage of” – Mikaela Ciofi-Huang
