Nine scholarships were awarded to students in Career Technical Education Programs and two were awarded to students with the intent of transferring to a four-year institution.
The Rotary Club of Montecito has been providing a growing number of scholarships to SBCC students since 2007, with funds being disbursed through the SBCC Foundation. Annually, the Rotary Club sponsors a luncheon held in SBCC’s John Dunn Gourmet Dining Room to recognize the outstanding dedication of selected students.
