The online DVC Scholarship Application reopens in October.

Students may access the scholarship application at www.dvc.edu/scholarships. Scholarships can be viewed at any time. Over 160 scholarship awards were offered this year through the DVC Scholarship program.  Scholarship awards range from $250-$2,000 and are available to students who are continuing their studies at DVC or transferring to a four-year college next fall.  To be considered for a scholarship, students must be enrolled at least half-time in both the Fall 2016 and Spring 2017 semesters and meet the specific scholarship criteria.  In addition, students must:
 
  • Submit a complete DVC scholarship application
  • Write a 500-word essay
  • Upload unofficial transcripts
  • Secure two recommendations (at least one from a DVC faculty member)
 
The Scholarship Office will be hosting several scholarship workshops throughout the scholarship season.  Shari Keller, Financial Aid Assistant II/Scholarship Coordinator will be available by appointment and on a drop-in basis to assist students with the application process.  She can be reached at (925)969-2094 and via email at scholarships@dvc.edu.  Please encourage students to apply for scholarships and to contact Shari if they have questions or need assistance.skeller@dvc.edu
 
 
I would like to thank you for your generosity in funding the DVC Foundation Scholarship. Being the recipient of this scholarship is going to help me financially. I am honored to be the recipient of this award.
