Encouraging and supporting students through scholarships
for college and career training

Since 2012 Second Core Foundation has awarded over $400,000 in scholarships.

We want to help.

We understand that college is expensive.  We also know that students can begin successful careers through the completion of trade schools and certification programs.  Every year money lays unclaimed, money that is available for people looking to further their education and career opportunities.  The mission of Second Core Foundation is to help students access education opportunities through financial support. 

As of 2020, our eligibility requirements have changed.  

Please see our "Eligibility" page to see the updated requirements and to fill out an application.

"Due to the support of Second Core Foundations and other scholarship organizations, I was able to attend Cal and pursue my ultimate dream of attending a top-notch university. Ever since I was a child, I always knew that I wanted to go to college, as most children do. However, it was not until I was older that I realized the huge financial burden of attending college. I will forever be grateful to Second Core for helping me to reach my dreams and for aiding me in developing a better future for myself. " - Past recipient

"It’s hard to believe that the first semester of college is already over! As I reflect upon this past school year, I have truly experienced God’s blessings multiplied over and over—just as it says in Psalm 23:5, “my cup overflows”.  The generous Second Core scholarship has helped me so much in being able to attend my first year of college without worrying about paying my tuition. I never in a million years expected to receive such a generous scholarship, and it is by the grace of God that I can attend such a great college with such an extraordinary scholarship." - Past recipient
