Apply For a Scholarship or Classroom Enrichment Grant
How do I apply for a scholarship?
There are many scholarships available within the Peralta Community College District. Please contact the Office of the Vice President of Students at each college for information about available scholarships and how to apply. Most scholarships require a separate application even if they use the Foundation’s Master Scholarship Application, so be sure to use the appropriate form for the scholarship(s) you are seeking.
To apply for scholarships administered by the Peralta Colleges Foundation, download the Foundation Scholars criteria and complete the MASTER APPLICATION FOR SCHOLARSHIP form then print and mail or deliver to Peralta Colleges Foundation, 333 East 8th Street, Oakland, CA 94606.
You can call the offices at 510.466.7206 to request a copy through email or U.S. Mail.
What are the requirements?
Scholarship criteria vary, however, most scholarships are for individuals with financial need. Scholarships are available for both full-time and part-time students. International students are welcome to apply. Some scholarships are for specific areas of study or for individuals with specific backgrounds or needs. Please see scholarship listing for details posted at each Peralta College, Office of the Vice President of Students. Applicants will be considered for all scholarships for which they are applying assuming all pertinent and required materials are included and all eligibility requirements are met.
An application for a Peralta Colleges Foundation scholarship does not take the place of a Peralta College Financial Aid application. For information about financial aid, speak with your Peralta Community College Financial Aid Office. All students are encouraged to complete a financial aid application in addition to this application.
