Investing in Miramar College Scholarships
Through the generosity of faculty, staff, industry partners and friends, doors are opened to a world of opportunities for deserving Miramar College students through scholarships.

Please help us continue to support excellence in education by contributing to, or establishing a scholarship. Invest now!
Endowed funds are established at $5,000 or more. The funds may be named at the donor's request and may be directed for scholarships or other special purposes.
Named Scholarship Funds: Gifts of $500 or more per year (minimum five-year commitment) will establish a new named scholarship fund. These funds may carry an individual's name or the name of an organization. Consider creating a career niche or academic program-specific scholarship. We can help you with the development of criteria and selection, if so desired. Gifts of any amount may be directed to existing named funds.

Facility Naming Opportunities
Due to the successful passage of two bond measures (propositions S and N), the San Diego Miramar College campus is in the midst of tremendous expansion, including construction of a new library/learning resource center, a fieldhouse, new classroom buildings, and a student union. The increased number of students served by the expansion will require increased support by the Foundation. Contact the
Miramar College President's Office if you would like to discuss building naming requirements.
