Financial Aid FAQs
Q. When can I apply for scholarships?
Most scholarships are posted on our website Financial Aid Programs under the "Scholarships" link. If you click on the "See list of current scholarship opportunities and deadlines" link, you will enter into a section of scholarships that are generally advertised in mid-October and have a deadline of mid-February.
To apply for one or more of scholarships from this section, you would need to complete a general application. Once you have completed the general application, you can begin applying for Foothill scholarships that you meet the qualifications for.
If you click on "Outside Scholarship Listing" link, you will enter into a scholarship section where Foothill College posts a vast variety of scholarships offered by different agencies. This application process is different from the one above. Students must follow guidelines of an individual scholarship and apply for each of them separately.
Third section of the Foothill College Scholarship Page is the "Additional Scholarship Recourses". This section provides more links and search engines where students may look for additional scholarship funds.
