Santa Barbara City College Foundation
Santa Barbara Beautiful’s commitment to higher education now includes funding of an annual Santa Barbara City College scholarship. The scholarship grants $1,000 per year to students pursing education in Horticulture. The scholarship testifies to our commitment to education and partnerships within the community.
This scholarship is established to encourage well-rounded SBCC Environmental Horticulture students with clear academic and community-related goals in order to increase the number of high quality horticultural professionals in the local community.
Applicants must be declared Environmental Horticulture majors enrolled in twelve (12) units at the time of application and for each semester of the award period. Preference given to students whose express intent is to complete a degree at SBCC and/or continue schooling at a four-year instituion in Environmental Horticulture or a related discipline. Preference also given to students intending to eventually practice in the local community.
Scholarship awards remain among the most important ways we encourage student success. They relieve financial burden, offer psychological support, and give validation to a very challenging endeavor.
They change and improve lives. Lucille Ball Ramirez, SBCC
