Fostering Better Lives Through Education

Assistance League of Sacramento awards scholarships to students attending community colleges in the Greater Sacramento area. Like many scholarship programs, our awards go to students with financial need and demonstrated ability, aptitude and a promise of a bright future. But, beyond those basic criteria, we seek to support students of any age who had and/or have life circumstances and challenges that are unusually difficult.

Initial scholarship winners are eligible to apply for Previous Recipient awards in subsequent years at community colleges and four-year institutions.

Community College Scholarships Help Transform Lives

Assistance League of Sacramento supports eight philanthropic programs to help those in need in our community. Scholarships at the community college level are one of our outstanding endeavors. Each year we look for students who are successfully managing their early college education, even though they have had or continue to have life circumstances or challenges that are more difficult than most.

  • The “New Recipient” scholarships are for $1,000 each. Seven were available this year. These are for students who have not previously won an Assistance League scholarship. Please note the other requirements for eligibility.
  • The “Previous Recipient” scholarships are for $2,000 each. Three were available this year. They are for students who have previously won an Assistance League scholarship. Requirements differ from the “new recipient” requirements.
