It’s not too early to think about attending Del Mar College (DMC) during the 2024-2025 academic year. And, covering associated costs to attend college can be as simple as applying for a scholarship. Currently, the DMC Foundation is taking online scholarship applications through midnight on April 30, so don’t wait. Go online and apply now!

People and partners––such as industry, restaurants and businesses––in our area strongly believe in the importance of getting an education; and, they have given generously to help local students start and achieve their education at Del Mar College. Providing scholarships to help students earn their education is the top priority of the Del Mar College Foundation.

Matthew Busby, CFRE, Associate Vice President of Development

The Foundation awarded over $2 million to about 1,000 students for the 2023-2024 academic year. 

Students attending DMC with a minimum of six (6) credit hours per semester and with a minimum 2.0 grade point average or a GED equivalency are eligible to apply. Essays are not required. For more information and to apply for many available scholarships with one application, go online now to www.delmar.edu/scholarships.

Questions? Contact the DMC Foundation at foundation@delmar.edu or 361-698-1317.

The DMC Foundation administers donor-funded scholarships, both direct and endowed. Funds help students pay for tuition, fees, technology, books or whatever is needed to start and successfully complete their education at Del Mar College. 

The Foundation’s scholarship program gives awards to students for both part-time course loads (six to 11-hours) and full-time (12 hours or more). Eligible students may receive scholarships through the program without regard to financial aid eligibility. 

Scholarships provide an amazing opportunity for students to focus on their academics instead of worrying about how they’ll pay for college. Receiving a scholarship also increases their chances of graduating on time.

Elsie Odom, Scholarship Coordinator with the DMC Development/Foundation Office

“Think of applying for scholarships as an investment,” she said, adding: “So, tell your friends and apply today!”
