All Opportunities

The Mesa College scholarship program enables students to complete their studies, and is one of the keys to ensuring student success through financial support. Scholarships range in value from $250 – $2,500. Scholarship opportunities are available to all Mesa students. Eligibility is the only limitation on the number of scholarships for which you can apply. Recipients will receive a maximum of three awards (the three highest in monetary value). If you are identified as a recipient for a scholarship opportunity, attendance at the annual Scholarship Awards Ceremony is required. Recipients attend for FREE! The ceremony will be held at the Mission Valley DoubleTree Hotel on Saturday, April 20, 2019 at 12:00 pm.
