Apply for Scholarships at MSJC


Although state and federal grants and programs are the primary way most students receive supplemental funding to pay for college, the Mt. San Jacinto College District Foundation offers scholarships for continuing and transferring students to assist with the costs involved with attending MSJC. 

Applications for Foundation scholarships are available each summer for the fall semester and each available scholarship will vary in eligibility and requirements. Among the scholarships available are awards based on your GPA, number of units completed, county of residence, and transfer goal. 

To be considered for these opportunities, you will need to complete the general scholarship application, which will be reviewed and winners selected by the Foundation board and/or outside donors. All submitted applications are automatically matched to scholarships in which you meet the eligibility criteria, although you may be prompted to supply supplemental information to receive additional scholarship opportunities. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the scholarship application process, please contact the Foundation office 951-487-3170 or email
