Scholarship Foundation Extends Application Deadline to Jan. 21

In light of ongoing disruptions resulting from the Thomas Fire and recent flooding, the Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara has extended the application deadline for its general and employer-sponsored scholarship programs to Jan. 21.

The deadline had been Jan. 15. Applications can be completed via the Scholarship Foundation website,

“We feel this is absolutely the right thing to do given everything our community has endured and continues to endure as a result of these tragic events,” said Tosha Lewis, director of programs and evaluation at the Scholarship Foundation.

“I encourage all Santa Barbara County students who have not yet completed an application to use this extra time wisely,” Lewis said.

The Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara provides college scholarships to Santa Barbara County students pursuing undergraduate, graduate or vocational education.

Students who wish to apply for the foundation’s general and employer-sponsored scholarship programs must first fill out a free application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or a Dream Act application.   

For more information, call 687-6065.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
