ADELA Scholarship

Each year, De Anza awards its Amigos de Educacion de las Americas (ADELA) scholarships to De Anza College students who are transferring to four-year institutions. Last year alone, we awarded twenty five $1,000 scholarships through our fundrasing efforts and the generous support of our faculty, staff, and community. To mark our 26th anniversary, our goal was to award at least 10 scholarships at our ceremony on June 19, 2020. Thanks to our generous sponsors we were able to reach that goal.

We would be honored if you could join us in supporting our students and reaching this milestone. Your tax-deductible contribution directly supports our LatinX students' educational goals as they continue their academic and career goals. We hope that you might join us and we appreciate your commitment to our resilient students and community.

Thank you in advance for valuing and celebrating our students' accomplishments. To contribute online, visit Foothill-De Anza Foundation donation page.
