Apply for Scholarships

Application Information

How do I apply for a scholarship?

There are many scholarships available within the Peralta Community College District.  Many you will find by clicking on the apply for scholarship link below. However, it will be in your best interest after applying for scholarships here to then visit the Additional Resources page and scroll down to find other scholarships available to Peralta students.

If you experience any difficulty, or have any questions in relation to the on-line scholarship application process you can can call the offices at 510.466.7206. We will also be hosting Scholarship workshops at each campus. Dates to be determined.

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, located in the left hand navigation bar under Available Scholarships. 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.

Please note:

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 College’s Financial Aid Office.

For scholarships and scholarship resources not administered by the Peralta Colleges Foundation click here, or visit BCC’s scholarship page.
