At the Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara, we believe that students need and deserve education beyond high school, and that every motivated student should have the opportunity to pursue postsecondary education. We have been supporting students in their higher education goals since 1962. After careful review of the applications and the more than 500 scholarship funds we manage, we provide scholarships to eligible students from Santa Barbara County for college, graduate, and vocational school.
