Scholarship Selection Process:

Candidates are selected per the scholarship requirements by the donors.  Each scholarship will focus on specific areas such as academic achievement, financial need, personal strengths, honors and awards, leadership, and commitment to giving back to the community.

All completed eligible applications are evaluated by different Yuba College Scholarship Committees.


By submitting an application, you (the student) are authorizing the various departments or committees at the college to access grade and course completion information. You also authorize the college to publicize information about the awarding of scholarship(s). Additionally, you may be required to write a thank-you letter to the donor, attend a scholarship recipient reception, and/or take a photo to be used for publicity purposes.

With the exception of transfer scholarships, all scholarships are for enrollment at Yuba College; they cannot be used at other community colleges or universities (unless specifically noted as a transfer scholarship to a four-year institution). Failure to enroll, meet all eligibility requirements, or dropping all classes after enrollment nullifies eligibility and award funds may be required to be repaid to the Foundation Office or donor.
