Santa Rosa Junior College’s Foundation will accept scholarship applications for the 2020-2021 academic year until March 2.

The SRJC Foundation offers students an easy way to apply to hundreds of scholarships ranging from $200 to $4,000 with just one application.

Sections on the application include basic information, community service, activities and employment, a 500-word essay and a budget calculator. Based on the information given in the main application, students may be asked to submit extra details later depending on the scholarships they are selected for.

Returning students are required to be enrolled in six or more units with an overall GPA of 2.0, although higher is recommended.

Transferring students must be enrolled in six or more units with an overall GPA of 3.0 or higher. Additionally, they must have completed 24 units at SRJC, 60 transferable units by Fall 2020 and will transfer to a four-year institution in Spring 2021.
