Our mission is to increase the self confidence, cultivate the competence, and strengthen the character of deserving students in San Diego by supporting them in furthering their educational, professional, and career readiness skills.
The Price Scholarship Program assists students from San Diego to complete an Associate Degree and/or Certificate Program at San Diego City College in two to three years. The assistance we provide for students comes in many forms: financial assistance, seminars, individual counseling, mentoring, a program retreat, and social events.

The Price Scholarship Program is extending an invitation to current City College students to apply to our Price Scholarship Program. Eight City College scholarships are available to students who must:
► Be currently enrolled and in good standing at San Diego City College.
► Residents of the downtown, mid-city, or southeast area of San Diego.
► Have a minimum 2.5 Grade Point Average in their college studies.
► Have graduated from high school within the last 7 years and are interested in completing a Certificate of Achievement, an Associates Degree, Transfer Studies, or a Certificate of Completion.
► Have demonstrated financial need.
► Perform 5 or 8 hours of Community Service/internships weekly with a pre-selected community agency or school throughout their participation in the program.
Scholars will gain valuable experience through structured job shadowing, and community service assignments, with local community agencies, schools, and businesses in City Heights, Balboa Park, and other central and southeastern areas of San Diego.
The scholarship year will begin in June 2012 and may be renewable if the student remains in good standing academically and programmatically. Scholarship participants will perform 5 or 8 hours per week and choose a site from the current list locations and services that offer a range of experiences. Scholars will receive $9,000 over a two year period. Scholars are required to attend regular weekly classes throughout their first year of participation in the program and meet with program staff on an ongoing basis to assess their performance and progress in the program.
