Scholarships are made possible by donors to the San Jacinto College Foundation (SJCF) and are managed by SJCF. Foundation Scholarships are a type of financial aid that do not need to be repaid. Scholarships are awarded each fall and spring semester to help San Jacinto College students pay for tuition and course related books and supplies. Scholarships are available to all SJC students in various programs of study.

Private scholarships are those in which the donor specifies the person who will receive the funding. The donor may be someone the student knows, such as the student's employer or their church, or they may be from local, state or national organizations to help pay for the cost of college.
