My son received several years of scholarships from the foundation and it is a great service to the community. I was very impressed with the professionalism of the staff and everyone was very helpful. It wasnt hard to follow the guidelines to receive his payments, we just had to remember to submit his schedule and grades each term. If you can't do that you don't deserve the award! Whenever I called to ask a question it was taken care of. We were thankful to have the money and it kept my son in school and reduced his loan debt. No place else but Santa Barbara has a foundation like this. We are grateful to them.

The Scholarship Foundation is a great place. I received 4 years of scholarships and it really helped me pay for college. It wasn't hard to apply and the people at the office always helped me out. Sure they have rules to follow, but they are giving away free money!! All I had to do was turn in my schedule and my grades each semester and the Foundation sent my check to the college. I finished at Cal Poly and now I'm living in Paso with a great teaching job. Please support scholarships and this foundation!
