Prospective Donors

Thank you for your interest in establishing a scholarship at
Glendale Community College

As college costs continue to rise, scholarship assistance is increasingly important to students who are dedicated to completing their education. Here at Glendale College, 40 percent of students rely on some type of financial aid and more than 75 percent have jobs, with more than half working 30-40 hours a week. Your contribution can make a real difference to a deserving student by paying for tuition, books, fees or other school expenses.

Why establish a scholarship?

  • To assist financially needy students
  • To memorialize a loved one
  • To honor a family member or friend on a special occasion
  • To help students pursue specific majors or careers
  • To help students continue their studies at GCC
  • To help students transfer to 4-year universities

What types of scholarships are suggested?

  • Perpetual/Endowed
    You can establish a scholarship fund with the college and maintain an account balance that enables us to generate enough income to finance your annual award. Perpetual/Endowed scholarships are invested through the GCC Scholarship Fund or the Glendale College Foundation Endowment. "The Glendale College Foundation offers matching funds for certain Perpetual/Endowed scholarships, and GCC also receives grants that provide matching funds for specific types of scholarships.
  • Annual
    You can invest funds on your own and send a contribution to the college when it is time to award your scholarship each year.

How are scholarships managed?

The college’s Scholarship Office administers all scholarship files and accounts, and coordinates the selection and award processes.

What are the criteria?

All GCC students who have completed at least 12 units of credit at GCC and are in good academic standing are eligible to apply for scholarships. You can establish additional eligibility and selection criteria for your scholarship to fit your preferences.

Who chooses recipients?

Scholarship recipients are typically selected by individual sponsors, the GCC Scholarship Committee or by faculty members who teach in specific academic majors or disciplines.

When and how are scholarships awarded?

Scholarships and grants are awarded during the fall and spring semesters. Sponsors traditionally present their scholarships personally, at awards banquets or at organizational meetings.

All contributions are tax deductible.
