Graduates Holding Diplomas

College is important for many reasons, including long-term financial gain, job stability, career satisfaction and success outside of the workplace. With more and more occupations requiring advanced education, a college degree  or technical/trade certificate is critical to your success in today's workforce.

The SUTTER YUBA COMMUNITY FOUNDATION is proud to support the continuing education efforts of the students in our area.  Through the generous donations of local philanthropic individuals and organizations, we offer several scholarship options for applicants to choose from. Each with unique qualifiers and benefits.
