Our Opportunities

Welcome to the TSJC Educational Foundation Scholarship Opportunities Homepage

Below you will find a listing of scholarships available to students with a short description about the scholarship qualifications. Completion of the General Application is required to be considered. Once you’ve completed the General Application, some scholarship opportunities may require a supplemental application with additional questions.

PLEASE NOTE: The system will identify you from the information you provide in your General Application and match you to potential opportunities. Further review of each opportunity will be necessary to ascertain if you meet ALL requirements. Scholarships that you are matched to automatically will appear with “No Further Action Required” listed under the “Action” column – this means an additional application is not required for consideration.

Scholarship award notifications generally are announced in May.
