Scholarship Opportunities at SBCC

Santa Barbara City College offers a great variety of scholarships to its current, transferring and newly incoming students. 

Scholarships are awarded based upon a combination of financial need, academic achievement and community/campus involvement. 

Scholarships are only one form of financial aid available to students. To be considered for other types of financial aid, students should either complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) or the California Dream Act. Instate students may qualify for a waiver of their enrollment fees and should complete the California College Promise Grant
