Del Mar College Foundation scholarships help our students stay in school without the burden of having to pay it back, unlike student loans. Scholarships provide an opportunity for students to earn an education and allow them to focus on their academics, increasing their chances of staying in school and graduating on time.

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 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 2021-2022 academic year, the Foundation awarded over $1.5 million to approximately 2,200 students.
