Several scholarships available to students

By Maria LaraReporter The Del Mar College Foundation office is awarding scholarships to students. The criteria for scholarships vary, but one thing is constant: New and returning students must complete their online applications as accurately as possible. Students are advised to check their Del Mar e-mail daily on WebDMC. The Scholarship Committee will advise students of their application status. Benefactors are notified of the recipients of their respective scholarships. They receive the appreciation letters from the students awarded scholarships along with a photo and are invited to meet the recipients in person. All scholarships are awarded at the annual Foundation Scholarship Reception held each spring. Requirements for applicants must be completed online during Del Mar’s annual application period.  Students applying for scholarships that require financial need must have completed a FAFSA before applying. If you are applying for a DMCF Scholarship, students do not need to complete the FAFSA. If you are a student and have missed the window for scholarships you may apply for emergency scholarships. These are only offered to students who have experienced an unexpected circumstance that jeopardizes their ability to pay for their education. Emergency funds are limited and availability varies from semester to semester. When applying for emergency scholarships students must have applied for financial aid.
