Setting up a Mesa Scholarship

Setting up a Mesa Scholarship 

Thank you for your interest in establishing a scholarship through Mesa College! Your investment will help hardworking students achieve their educational goals.

Creating a scholarship is a unique way to leave a philanthropic legacy of opportunity and open a pathway to success for current and future Mesa students. By establishing a scholarship, you can:

  • name the scholarship in your name or in the name of a loved one
  • choose who you want to help
  • pick criteria for the scholarship based on your interests

You can establish a scholarship in just two steps:

  • Step 1: Tell Us About Your Scholarship
    Complete a form that will detail all the guidelines for your scholarship.
    Set Up Scholarship

  • Step 2: Fund Your Scholarship
    Scholarships range greatly with a minimum award of $250 and no maximum award. Our scholarship cycle opens in December each year, and scholarships must be funded by November in order to be available to students. Donations may be made via check, cash, or credit card.
    • To donate by check: Please make payable to: Mesa College Foundation, and list the name of your scholarship in the notes section.
    • To donate via credit card: After you complete Step 1,contact the Office of Resource Development by emailing both dsolares@sdccd.edu and kstellmacher@sdccd.edu or calling (619) 388-2285 to be provided a unique link to give to your scholarship.

Checks can be sent to, or cash may be dropped off at:
