The ARCE department has both need-based and merit-based scholarships. To qualify for need-based ARCE Scholarships, applicants must have applied for FAFSA. Cal Poly's priority filing deadline is TBD.  If you missed the deadline for the FAFSA you can still be eligible for merit based scholarships!

Scholarships will be formally presented at the ARCE Scholarship Luncheon. 

Look at previous scholarship recipient photos here!

Internal Scholarships

Below are listed the internal scholarships. Click on a scholarship to learn more information about it, but you must still apply through your Cal Poly portal. 

  Just log onto your portal and access the app under the Apps section on the side of the home screen.

The deadline for applying for ARCE Scholarships is TBD at 11:59pm.

Every year, we also award one scholarship sponsor the "ARCY Award," an award for the best video presentation of the company's scholarship! For more information about the ARCY Award, details on how to enter, and past winners click here!
