The scholarship program is a competitive process.  Applying for a scholarship does not guarantee receipt of a scholarship.  To ensure your application receives full consideration you should complete the application, answering as many questions as possible.  The more information you provide, the more opportunities you will have to be considered for various scholarships, as you are matched to available scholarships based on the answers you provide, including the personal statement essay, leadership and work experience, financial need, education history and a letter of recommendation from a Moorpark College Faculty member.

For any questions on the application process, please email the scholarship office at: or call (805) 378-1418.
