Scholarships

Scholarships for Santa Cruz County high school and college students
Students wanting to continue their higher education can get help from scholarships at the Community Foundation.

We believe strong communities are built on strong minds.

Welcome! We're so excited to see your interest in our scholarships. Our donors have established a number of scholarships for local students to realize their educational goals.

We have ten academic scholarships open to all Santa Cruz County students and one outdoor wilderness award (no open application process) for those attending Cypress Charter High School.

Scholarships for 2018-2019 are closed but students can apply for the 2019-2020 academic school year, beginning December 17, 2018.

Since 2000, we have awarded over $700,000 in scholarships and awards to students in the county.
