ABOUT THE MIRACOSTA Scholarship Program
The MiraCosta College Foundation supports many scholarships throughout the fall and spring semesters. A majority of the scholarships are for continuing MiraCosta College students, but there are also scholarships for MiraCosta College students transferring to 4-year institutions and for graduating high school seniors planning to enroll at MiraCosta College in the fall.
