Website to assist financial needs

Tristen Fernane

Finding a way to afford college can be stressful.  Fortunately, City College now has a website dedicated to scholarships to help students ease that stress.

By going onto the San Diego City College website, students can click on the college services link and then click on the link for Student Support Resources. Once on the Student Support Resources page, students will see the new scholarship link. Here they will find a helpful sidebar, with links ranging from application tips, to other websites where scholarships can be found.

In order to apply for any of the scholarships found on the website, two general criteria must be met. First, students must be enrolled at San Diego City College for Fall 2012 and Spring 2013. Second, recipients should represent the diversity of the student body of City College.

If the criteria is fulfilled, a useful link on the sidebar called the Scholarship List will direct students to 45 scholarship links that open up into applications, which students can print and then fill out. Some of the scholarships offered include: Anthropology, ASG, Child Development, Mathematics, SDG&E Leadership, as well as many others.

Another link is for Outside Scholarships, where it lists various establishments, such as Rotary Clubs, that provide scholarships. The name of the foundation, amount of the scholarship, deadline and a link to the website where students can fill out an application are also provided.

The San Diego City College scholarship page holds many opportunities for a range of different students.
