ESL Scholarship Fund


The ESL Department sponsors a scholarship program that provides financial awards to deserving students currently enrolled in ESL classes at CCSF. Students who are carrying 12 or more units, who have completed at least one semester of ESL classes at the 130/182 level or above, and who have a GPA of 3.0 or higher can apply for scholarships in the latter part of February of each year.

Applications are available here and from the ESL Department secretary, Batmale 616, and are due in March each year. Scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic achievement, academic improvement, and financial need. While GPA alone does not determine if a student qualifies for consideration for a scholarship, students should remember that the selection committee does scrutinize each student's academic record as part of the selection process.

ESL Scholarships offer our students a unique opportunity to develop a greater understanding of the benefits that a college education in the United States can provide. In addition to assisting our deserving scholars with financial assistance, these awards offer our ESL students a glimpse of how their dreams can be realized through hard work and diligence. In order to reward more students of such exceptional character and caliber, the ESL Scholarship Committee asks you to contribute to this year’s scholarship program. With your help, many more ESL students will be able to achieve their educational goals.
