Annette Bening

The Annette Bening Promise Scholarship was established in 2018 in honor of Mesa College alumna, and actor, Annette Bening. The Academy Award-nominated and Golden Globe-winning actor credited her time at Mesa for inspiring her to pursue a career in acting. This scholarship is awarded to one student each year at City, Mesa, and Miramar colleges along with San Diego Continuing Education, who demonstrate academic excellence and a commitment to service.

To be eligible, the student must:
- Be enrolled full-time (12 units or more)
- Must be a Promise student in good standing with the program (i.e., meets all Promise program requirements)

If there is no funding or there are no qualified applicants that reflect this format the scholarship will not be awarded for that year.
