SBBC Invests $2 Million In Scholarships
Career College Central summary:
Santa Barbara Business College pledged $2 million in a new scholarship program, introduced during the college’s 125th anniversary celebration.
The college, which has five campuses, is offering support of up to $5,000 for individuals wishing to continue their academic studies.
Applicants will not be judged on previous grades but on their potential for success in the future, which is assessed in essays and recommendations, according to a college spokesman.
“We’ve come a long way since our early days of training teachers and bankers at the turn of the 20th century,” said Matthew Johnston, president of Santa Barbara Business College. “The college has seen two world wars, the Great Depression and countless earthquakes, and one thing remains constant: the enthusiasm for learning from our students. This scholarship program will ensure that continues for the next 125 years.”
