Welcome to The Price Scholarship Program
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 available for students graduating from Garfield, Crawford, Lincoln, Monarch, Morse, San Diego High Schools, Urban Corps, and current students attending San Diego City College.
Price Scholars receive assistance to fulfill their educational goals. Such assistance includes financial assistance, academic assistance, and individual counseling. In exchange for this assistance, Price Scholars are required to perform 200 to 300 hours of community service or internships in the community each year they are enrolled in the program.
The Price Scholarship Program helps prepare students for the job market by encouraging and assisting them in obtaining a Certificate of Completion or an Associate Degree. We also provide them with valuable experience through structured job shadowing, community service assignments, and internships with local community agencies, schools, and businesses in the City Heights, Balboa Park, and the local community of San Diego.
The Price Scholarship Program is made possible by Price Philanthropies.
In partnership with San Diego City College Student Services whose mission is to inspire, empower and support our students to excel in their intellectual, social and cultural development to enhance student goal completion.
