The Foundation Scholarship Program - Named Scholarships

The El Camino College Foundation provides more than 500 scholarships annually. These scholarships meet the needs of our diverse student population: some are discipline specific; some reward academic excellence; they are extended to students from local high schools and those transferring to four-year universities to continue their education. Some scholarships are to support earnest students with a financial need who do not meet federal or state assistance requirements. All applicants must be on the path for a two-year degree, transferring to a four-year university or participating in a vocational or certificate program.

These scholarships not only assist with, but in many cases, fully cover tuition, fees and textbooks. This is what sets The Foundation Scholarship Program for El Camino College students apart from any other.

Unquestionably, the Foundation’s generous supporters make this program possible, enabling a growing number of deserving students to achieve their educational goals.
