• Del Mar College - Scholarships

    The Del Mar College Foundation office awards scholarships to incoming students, and continuing students. Scholarships are available and are awarded according to the criteria the benefactor outlined when establishing the scholarship.

    Selection of Scholarship Recipients 

    The Del Mar College Foundation Scholarship Committees include Foundation board members, faculty, and community members.  The criteria for scholarships vary; students must complete their online applications as accurately as possible.   Applications are accepted from incoming students as well as returning students.   Students are advised of their application status soon after the Scholarship Committees meet.   Benefactors are notified of the recipients of their respective scholarships, receive the appreciation letters from the students benefitting from their scholarships along with a photo when available, and are invited to meet the recipients in person at our Foundation Scholarship Reception held each Spring.
