All completed applications are evaluated by Woodland Community College Scholarship Committees for selection of scholarship award recipients. Once selected, recipients are notified by YCCD student email. Scholarship funds are disbursed within the academic year they are awarded. Funds are disbursed to students with BankMobile Disbursements, a technology solution, powered by BMTX, Inc. More about this process can be found here.
