Scholarships are a financial resource provided to students by the generosity of the San Jose Evergreen Foundation, local businesses, special programs at the campus, alumni, and a variety of other private donors. Scholarship funds help to assist students in paying for their higher education expenses when federal and state financial assistance is not enough. Scholarship funds are limited and usually awarded on a competitive and/or special criteria basis, such as GPA, academic major, or demonstrated volunteerism, leadership, or community service. We encourage all students to apply for scholarships. embed scholarship playlist*
