Golden Door Scholarship

Please note: All scholarships will be awarded starting Fall of 2020. Strong preference will be given to applicants who plan to concentrate their studies in career-ready degrees.

Scholarship recipients will receive funding for a four-year degree at Golden Door partner schools beginning Fall semester, 2020. Students who have applied to or are interested in other colleges should also apply. We will support students at non-partner schools on a case-by-case basis.

Note that Golden Door will match scholarship recipients to partner and other colleges, based on student preference and school admission slot availability.
