The DMC Foundation is now offering a new application that should help with some of the stress of applying for multiple scholarships. There is now a new application available to all current students attending Del Mar College, high school seniors in the DMC service area and all people planning to attend DMC in fall 2023 and/or winter 2024.
The foundation has awarded over $1.5 million to approximately 1,000 students for the 2022-23 academic year.
“Scholarships provide an amazing opportunity for students to focus on their academics instead of worrying about how they will pay for college. Receiving a scholarship also increases their chances of graduating on time,” said Elsie Odom, scholarship coordinator with the college’s Development/Foundation Office.
The application is easy and fast. You can complete one application to apply for many scholarships. It takes as little as 10 to 15 minutes for most people to apply. Students are also encouraged to submit a FAFSA application as well for extra help.
Some scholarships are awarded without regard to financial aid eligibility. Essays are not required to apply. Awards are available for part-time and full-time students. Also, a 2.0 GPA minimum or GED is required. Students must attend DMC with a minimum of six credit hours per semester during the scholarship award period.
“This application was super, super easy to fill out,” said DMC sophomore Haylie Godoy.
The application is available now through April 30, with awards for the 2023-2024 academic year. For more information, and to apply for many available scholarships with one application, go to www.delmar.edu/scholarships.
