Last updated 1/3/2018 at 12:06pm

The application deadline for scholarships through Basic Assistance to Students in the Community (BASIC) program is Friday Feb. 23. The scholarships are awarded to students and adults attending a university or four-year college, a community college, or career or vocational training.

Recent scholarships have ranged from $250 – $3,000, and may be renewed for continuing students. The scholarship program is open to any resident in the Borrego Springs Unified School District’s boundaries. High school seniors and adults are encouraged to apply.

Applications may be obtained from BASIC’s website at A large part of the program’s funds are proceeds from the annual Circle of Art juried art show and sale, scheduled for March 10 – 11 at Christmas Circle.
