Financial Aid & Scholarships


Scholarship Overview

  The purpose of the Scholarship Program at Grossmont College is to recognize outstanding achievement, encourage academic excellence, and offer support to meritorious students.  The program is also responsible for processing scholarships awarded to students from outside organizations or sponsors.
Scholarships are awarded on a very competitive basis by the Grossmont College Scholarship Advisory Committee. Merit scholarships are awarded solely on the basis of academic merit. Restricted scholarships are awarded on the basis of merit and one or more additional criteria, such as demonstrated financial need, study in a particular major, or leadership.

Grossmont College is actively engaged in developing new and exciting scholarship opportunities. Several awards have recently been established through the generous support of individual sponsors, foundations, businesses and community organizations. Grossmont College looks forward to developing additional opportunities, including partnerships with corporate sponsors, and welcomes your inquiries.

At Grossmont College, every gift toward scholarships is appreciated and celebrated. Every gift, regardless of its size, helps deserving students.
