The DMC Foundation administers donor-funded scholarships, both direct and endowed, to help Del Mar College students pay for their college education. Scholarships can be used for tuition, fees, technology, books or whatever a student needs to start and remain in school.

“The financial awards aid students to get an education that prepares them for the workforce and help them succeed to their greatest potential,” said Elsie Odom, Scholarship Coordinator in the DMC Development/Foundation Office.

“Scholarship awards through the Foundation also help students stay in the Coastal Bend community,” Odom added. “In return, they are able to go out into the workforce sooner, and by being a recipient of a scholarship, we hope that students will ‘give back’ to the community when they are financially able.”

The Foundation’s scholarship program offers awards for 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.

For the 2020-2021 academic year, the Foundation awarded over $1.2 million to approximately 1,151 students.
