Saddleback College Foundation Scholarships enable you to provide the gift of education to our students. Many of our scholarship recipients would not be able to continue their education without the help they receive from donors like you. Whatever your motivation is for funding scholarships, you can be assured that 100% of your donation will go directly to students.
Gifts can be made to the general scholarship fund, to an existing fund, or you can create a scholarship that will benefit a specific type of student.Whether you want to assist a student who is majoring in a certain area, transferring to your favorite university, or comes from a similar background, we can match you to a student in need. Many of our scholarships are donated by companies that want to encourage students to study a certain profession in our Career and Technical Education program. Others create a scholarship for students who have overcome particular hardships that the donors empathize with.
Please do not hesitate to give, even if you feel like what you can offer isn't much. Anything helps! Because the cost of attending Saddleback College is significantly lower than attending other higher-education institutions, your dollar goes further! You can always give what you can now and increase your donation amount as your situations allows.
Every year the Foundation hosts a Scholarship Awards Ceremony that allows donors to come face-to-face with the student(s) they supported. This is also when the students receive their award. We encourage all of our donors to attend as it provides a great opportunity interact with amazing students. See pictures from the most recent Scholarship Awards Ceremony.

2013 Annual Scholarship Awards Ceremony
MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
OF SADDLEBACK COLLEGE
Saddleback College’s scholarship ceremony is an annual tradition that has provided nearly $4 million in scholarships and awards to deserving students over the past 37 years. Our first ceremony in 1976 included 45 donors contributing just over $12,000 to some 60 students. We’ve come a long way: This year, scholarship funds to Saddleback College students total more than $498,000 and have been made available to over 300 deserving students.
Tod A. Burnett, Ed.D.
