California Scholarships

With more degree-granting institutions than any other state in the country, California has hundreds of opportunities for college-seeking students. But what good is that selection if you can’t afford the tuition?

Finding a scholarship or grant for California students can help. Just as there are plenty of schools to choose from in the Golden State, there is a wide selection of financial aid options as well.

Popular California Scholarships

The California Student Aid Commission (CSAC) is one of the many organizations dedicated to getting Californians the financial aid they need for college.

The Commission offers a number of programs including Cal Grants A, B and C, which offer grants between $1,000 and $6,000 to eligible students depending on the type of school they plan to attend.

Some of California’s public or private schools, such as UCLA or the University of Southern California, may offer their own scholarships to California residents.

The Alumnae Scholarship at USC, for example, awards up to $4,000 to exceptional students enrolled at the school, and gives priority to residents of California.

Applying for California Scholarships

While there will be some California-based scholarships that are open to students nationwide, many will be reserved for California residents only.

Since the state is so culturally diverse, especially in Southern California, minority students might find that a number of financial aid opportunities are reserved for their particular group as well.
