December 26, 2012

The San Diego Foundation - the biggest resource of financial aid for college in the county - is providing scholarships for college to graduating high school seniors, students already in college and grad students. There are also scholarships for those studying vocational trades and former students looking to restart their education.

According to the organization, it sponsored 650 students who received a total of $2.5 million in financial aid for college in 2011. A scholarship application for 100 different scholarships can be filled out by hopeful students on the internet.

"With the economy still sluggish and tuition costs rising, The Foundation is preparing for a sharp increase in applications from graduating high school seniors who are financially struggling, as well as from adults who find themselves out of work and returning to the classroom to develop new job skills," wrote a representative from the foundation in a statement. 

Schools students could potentially attend in the eighth largest city in California include California College San Diego, which specializes in business, healthcare, graphic arts and computers. There's also University of California San Diego, which claims to be a global leader in public research.
