Creating Opportunity. Ensuring Success

The Omega Nu Scholarship program is one of the largest in Santa Cruz County. The program was established in 1957 to assist qualified students who are planning to attend public California universities or colleges. These scholarships are based on financial need and scholastic achievement. Over the past six years more than $390,000 has been awarded to local high school and college students. The amount awarded each year is dependent on the proceeds from the annual Omega Nu fund raisers. The eligibility and general requirements are listed below. In 2017 $76,000 was awarded in new and renewal scholarships to 75 students in the County of Santa Cruz.  For more information email: or contact the local high school counseling offices.
