Latina/o Recognition Scholarship and Ceremony

ADELA Scholarship

Each year De Anza awards ADELA scholarship(s) based on fundraising efforts and hosts a recognition ceremony for all graduating and transfer students who wish to participate. Last year, we awarded four $1,000 scholarships and hope to increase the number of scholarships this year. 

Please consider supporting the ADELA scholarship fund through a payroll deduction! See how below.
