Community members each year invest in VHCC students through their generous contributions to the VHCC Educational Foundation. These donations provide a variety of student scholarships, which are awarded to both first-year and second-year students and are based on academic performance, financial need and a variety of other factors.

Applications for VHCC Educational Foundation scholarships must be completed by April 25, 2014.

  • One application allows the student to be considered for all of the scholarships available through the Educational Foundation.
  • Only those students admitted to VHCC will be considered for scholarships.
  • Scholarships are awarded for fall and spring semesters but are not available for the summer semester.
  • Scholarship awards are based on the availability of funds and the criteria set forth by the appropriate governing body. All awards are subject to change.
  • Unless otherwise stated, scholarships are awarded only to full-time students.
  • Unless otherwise stated, scholarships are not renewed automatically.
  • Students applying for scholarships that are based on a financial need should complete the FAFSA before submitting an application for scholarship by April 1 (www.fafsa.ed.gov). Financial need is determined through the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
  • The VHCC Educational Foundation will notify scholarship recipients of their award by a letter.
