How to Prepare for the General Scholarship Application

  1. To apply for a San Jacinto College Foundation scholarship you must have a San Jacinto College student identification number.  Your G# (generated ID number) is your student identification number. To obtain your student G# you will need to apply to San Jacinto College by completing the New Student Application. Your application will be processed within 48 business hours after it is submitted. To confirm that the application has been received make sure that you see the confirmation notice that appears after submitting the application. After your application is processed you will receive an email with further information. This email is extremely important, please read it carefully and comply with all instructions or requests. Once you have received your student G# you will be able to access the San Jacinto College Foundation general scholarship application.
  2. To help prepare for the general scholarship application here are a few items you will need to have ready:
    1. Prepare your essay questions.  It is a good idea to compose your answers to the essay questions in a word processing application such as Microsoft Word (see questions below.)  Once you have prepared your answers, please copy and paste them into the appropriate text box on your scholarship application.
      1. Provide a brief description of your educational and career goals. Include any details you feel will be beneficial to the scholarship committee such as: financial need as documented by the FAFSA, unusual circumstances concerning you and/or your family, or any additional information you feel is relevant.

      2. What is your major/area of study and what are your future career plans?

      3. How do you plan to use your studies at San Jacinto College to achieve your future career plans. 

b. All applicants are required to upload their most recent high school or college (other than San Jacinto College) transcript.     

c. All applicants are required to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to determine eligibility for some of the scholarships offered by the Foundation. Once you have completed the FAFSA you will need to upload your Student Aid Report (SAR). The SAR is a one-page summary of the data you submitted on the FAFSA application and indicates your official Expected Family Contribution (EFC). You will only need to upload the SAR. Do not upload the full FASFA application.

d. Prepare a list of extracurricular and volunteer activities; include community, club and church involvement.

e. Prepare a list of awards, honors and prizes you have received.

f. Prepare a list of your employment history.
