Scholarship Deadline is April 22 for the Upcoming Academic Year

More than 98% of our students receive some type of financial aid assistance. This aid is funded through federal, state, outside scholarships and institutional scholarship funds.

Our many dedicated donors continue to graciously fund scholarships that enable us to assist more than 150+ students with scholarship funds. During the 2020-2021 academic year, our scholarship awards varied from $150 to $10,000 annually.

Scholarships are awarded based on many criteria, including academic excellence, extra-curricular involvement, and leadership. Other awards take into consideration factors such as financial need and geographic location.

The scholarship application deadline is April 22 for the upcoming academic year (e.g. April 22, 2022 is the deadline for Fall 2022/Spring 2023). Scholarship applications can be accessed by clicking the "Apply for EGSC Scholarships Here" button below and filling out the scholarship applications.

Many scholarships are need-based and, therefore, require completion of a FAFSA. If the Office of Financial Aid has not received your completed FAFSA (and any other required documents) by the time the Scholarship Committee meets to determine awards, you most likely will not be considered for these type scholarships. As such, all potential scholarship applicants are strongly encouraged to meet the regular financial aid application priority deadline.

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is an American immigration policy that allows certain undocumented students who entered the country before their 16th birthday and before June 2007, to receive a renewable, two-year work permit and exemption from deportation. In some states, like in California, AB 540 students may qualify to attend college and pay in-state tuition; being exempt from paying non-resident tuition. Be sure to know your status and all the eligibility requirements when applying for these kinds of scholarships.

There are specific organizations such as TheDream.Us that help immigrant youth and undocumented students who have received DACA status achieve their American Dream through the completion of a college education. The Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund also provides students a scholarship program, regardless of their immigration status, as long as students can demonstrate a commitment to advancing Latino civil rights through their career.

Not only do such organizations provide scholarship programs and opportunities, but they also have education resources based on your state - be sure to check your current or prospective college's scholarship and financial aid opportunities to help fund your college education. You may need to conduct some personal research and stay updated on immigration policies, as they are constantly fluctuating and may have some gray areas. Even if a state does not have a DREAM Act, schools may offer merit scholarships that are not tied to federal funding. And remember to conduct a free search to see what scholarships you may be eligible for.

Below are just some scholarships available to undocumented students, or ones that do not request immigration status or citizenship. Read the eligibility and status requirements carefully when applying. You can find more information on these and other awards by completing a profile and conducting a free college scholarship search on Scholarships.com.

REMEMBER – DON’T EVER PAY FOR A SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION – VALID SCHOLARSHIP OFFERS WILL NOT REQUIRE A PAYMENT FROM YOU TO APPLY OR PROCESS.
