Each year, the three colleges of the San Mateo County Community College District (Cañada College, College of San Mateo, and Skyline College) award institutional scholarships to new, continuing, and transfer students. The scholarship awards are based on academic achievement, financial need and specific interests such as clubs, athletics, and service.

Our scholarships are funded through contributions made by alumni, faculty, staff, businesses, civic groups, and community organizations to the San Mateo County Community Colleges Foundation. Through our partnership, the Foundation takes part in promoting student success in ensuring quality, affordable higher education. For more information, please visit the San Mateo County Community Colleges Foundation website.

College of San Mateo offers many scholarships with awards up to $20,000 per year.
