The 2016 Scholarship Ceremony will take place on May 13, in Saddleback College gymnasium.

In 2013, nearly 200 donors contributed almost $510,000 in scholarship dollars to 326 students.  It was a record breaking year for Saddleback College Foundation, but there was still a tremendous amount of unmet need. In 2015, the record broke again, with over $732,000 awarded to 449 students. Below are some photos from the scholarship ceremony in 2015.
