Scholarships & Endowments

“I am a young, working mom who attends college full-time in order to provide the best future possible for my family, and most importantly, my son.  By getting this scholarship, you have  helped me [get] one step closer to the future I dream of…”              

– Kreystine Gonzales, 2018 Scholarship Recipient

Scholarships

Scholarships are an ideal way to support student success at Barstow Community College.

Scholarships assist BCC students with tuition, fees, textbooks and other expenses associated with receiving their college education. They serve current Barstow College students as well as students who plan to transfer to a four-year institution. The Barstow College Foundation has numerous established scholarships to which donors may contribute by way of a donation to our general Scholarship Fund or we can work directly with individuals and corporations interested in establishing a new scholarship.

In 2018, more than 90 scholarships totaling over $65,000 were awarded to BCC students thanks to the generosity of our dedicated donor family.

The 2018 Scholarship application period is currently closed. The 2019 Scholarship application period will open in December 2018.  Please check back for updates or reach out to the BCC Financial Aid Office with any additional questions.

Endowments

Establishing an Endowment means a lifetime of BCC students will be impacted by your contributions.

Endowed Scholarships may be started with a minimum gift of $500 and donors have three (3) years to endow the fund at the required minimum level of  $5,000. The amount of the annual scholarship awarded will be determined by the Barstow College Foundation’s Financial Committee, based on the amount of interest the fund generates in a year.

Should a donor have a goal for the number of scholarships they would like their endowment to support, the Foundation is happy to confer with our Investment team and work with you to make sure your investment level will yield the appropriate funds.
