Students who are looking for a little extra financial boost can apply for scholarships through the SCC Foundation or the City College Transfer Center.

Both the Foundation and the Transfer Center offer several scholarship opportunities for students, many of which require very little effort to apply for, according to the facilitators of the programs.

The official website for the SCC Foundation states that scholarships are available to students who completed a minimum of 12 units at City College by the end of the 2013 fall semester and are currently enrolled in at least six units. Students must also meet the basic requirements for each scholarship and can apply for up to 10 different awards. The deadline to apply is March 7 by 4 p.m.

Additionally, the Transfer Center offers services, information and opportunities for students on how to put even more money into their college funds. On Feb. 11 from noon-1 p.m. in the Learning Resource Center, room 141, there will be a workshop to help students gather more information about these opportunities.

“They are one-hour sessions explaining the who, what and when of scholarships,” said Kim Gilley, director of the Transfer Center. “There are many common questions students have, including how will a scholarship affect [their] financial aid.”

Ann Love, public services assistant in the SCC Foundation office, explained that the process to apply for scholarships, which are offered by various alumnus donors and other organizations, is simple, allowing interested individuals to easily navigate the online application system and complete the essays for those scholarships that require them.

“Names of volunteers and their contact information are posted on the SCC scholarship page, and students may call a volunteer for an appointment for help with applications,” said Love. “Also, students should always check to see that there are recommendations posted for them before the deadline.”

Recommendation letters are filed on behalf of students by faculty members, and students applying for scholarships are responsible for requesting them.

“Having only one recommendation, instead of the required two, can make the difference between receiving the award and losing it to a more conscientious applicant,” said Love.
