Need-Based Scholarship Application

This scholarship application is open to SEU NorCal students who meet established criteria, including enrollment in an Associate or Bachelor Program at the NorCal campus. A need-based scholarship is given to students who have a significant financial need or burden that is inhibiting them from completing their degree. The scholarship can be earned two ways, either through direct award or by participating in our student worker program. Awards are granted on a semester-by-semester basis and will always be applied to a student’s educational expenses.
