If applying using the online application, REQUIRED additional documents (letters of recommendation, transcript) can be uploaded and submitted with the online application. These documents must be in PDF format. NOTE: You will first submit your application form, then use the Secure File Upload process to upload your documents. If you prefer, you can mail these documents to the address below.

Once you have submitted your online application, you’ll receive a confirmation email from Assistance League of Greater San Diego (‘webforms-algsd@assistanceleague.org’). If you submit your required additional forms online, you’ll receive a confirmation message at the time you submit your files, but no email confirmation.

If you choose not to submit your application online, you may download and print an application form (Upper Division Scholarship Application). This form should be filled out and mailed, with the REQUIRED additional documents to the address below.
