The 2021-2022 Wenatchee Valley College Foundation scholarship application is now open. The deadline to apply is Monday, Feb. 21.

Student applicants only need to fill out one application to be considered for over 60 scholarships. The foundation will award more than $300,000 for 2021-2022. Funding is available for every area of study. All current and incoming WVC students are encouraged to apply, including adult learners, part-time students, students with previous degrees, and DREAMers.

The application is entirely online and is available in both English and Spanish. Award decisions will be made in Spring 2021 and funds will be distributed in Fall 2021.

“Going to college can be a financial challenge for many WVC students and their families,” said Rachel Evey, WVC Foundation executive director. “Costs range from tuition to childcare to equipment for remote learning. We are grateful that our community continues to generously support these scholarships, especially right now and as we look to the future.”

For the 2020-2021 academic year, the WVC Foundation awarded scholarships to over 100 students. The average award amount was $2,700 and over half of the recipients were the first in their family to attend college.
