Our Opportunities

Welcome to the Los Rios Scholarship Opportunities Homepage! The application period is currently closed but will re-open between Monday, January 6th and Friday, March 6th, 2020. Below you will find a listing of scholarships available to Los Rios students.

Please click on the “Show Filters” button and select your campus to see the scholarships available to you.

During the scholarship season, you can Sign In using the button in the upper right-hand corner with your Student ID Number and password. You will then have the opportunity to complete a general application and, if applicable, apply for specific scholarships. You will also be auto-matched to scholarships that you qualify for based on your student record and answers to the questions in the application. You may view Recommended Scholarships after you sign-in and complete your application. You will be pre-screened based on your student record and your answers to the application, and scholarships that match with your area of study, GPA, units, and extracurriculars will be recommended to you. You should only apply for scholarships that appear on your Recommended Opportunities page. If the scholarship does not appear on your Recommended Opportunities page, you do not qualify for it and your application will not be considered. Note: you likely only qualify for scholarships offered at the college you are currently attending. Do not apply for scholarships offered by a college you have not attended. You will not qualify.
