Scholarship Funding

Coastline Community College Foundation is committed to ensuring the continued success and support of our students by sponsoring an Annual Scholarship Campaign. Scholarships are made available through the generous donations of Coastline Community College's Foundation, Associated Student Government (ASG), faculty, staff, community organizations and private donors. Scholarships are awarded to applicants on a variety of factors, such as academic achievement, financial need, community involvement, volunteerism, program major and more. Unlike some other forms of financial aid, scholarships do not have to be repaid. However, unless otherwise stipulated, recipients are required to submit formal thank you letters to the scholarship donors, as well as attend the Scholarship Awards Ceremony on Thursday May 5th, 2016.

Selection Factors and Application Information

Scholarship recipients are selected by the Scholarship Selection Committee, whose members include administrators, classified staff, faculty, and Coastline Community College Foundation Board members.

Factors for selection can include academic achievement, service and leadership, college and community involvement, and/or financial need.
