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.

Our donors have established a number of scholarships for local students. 

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.

Students can apply for scholarships for the 2019-2020 academic school year, beginning December 2018.

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