Our Opportunities

Welcome to the San Jose Evergreen Community College District Scholarship website! The scholarships listed below are scholarships offered by EVC and SJCC.

To start the application process, click the “Sign Up” button to begin. You must use your email address on file with your school to be able to sign up for an account and begin your scholarship application.

Do not leave any questions unanswered on your application. Failure to provide all necessary information may disqualify you from scholarship opportunities. Remember to submit all required documentation, if applicable.

Automatch Scholarships: Once you complete your General Application & Conditional Application, you will be matched with scholarships for which you immediately qualify based on reported data – no further action is required.

Apply to Scholarships: To see a list of scholarships that you may qualify for but require additional action on your part to receive consideration, select “Recommended” under “Opportunities.”

All students who qualify will be both automatched and recommended to these opportunities. Qualifying does not guarantee you will receive a scholarship, only that you are now eligible to be considered for one based on the data you have reported.

Browsing “All” Scholarships: Below is a list of all scholarship opportunities within SJECCD AcademicWorks system. This list shows all scholarships in AcademicWorks that will be awarded in the upcoming academic year. The “Deadline” column indicates the deadline to complete the application including submitted letters of recommendation to receive consideration. This is not the deadline to accept the award.

NOTE: The number and award amount of scholarships are for general information purposes only and should not be considered a guarantee of what you will receive if selected. Actual award amounts vary based on students’ individual eligibility, funds available, and other factors.
