AVC to show students where to find the money

High school seniors planning to attend Antelope Valley College (AVC) and current AVC students are invited to learn how to apply for scholarships through the Antelope Valley College Foundation.

Students are encouraged to attend any one of five workshops being offered to learn about the process and improve their chances to receive one of nearly 200 scholarships made available through local donors. Last year, more than $100,000 in local scholarships was awarded AVC students.

The workshops are slated for:

  • Nov. 15, 4-5:15 p.m., in BE 248 at the Lancaster campus, 3041 W. Ave. K.
  • Nov. 16, 2-3:15 p.m., BE 245, Lancaster campus.
  • Nov. 17, 12:45-2 p.m., APL 105, Lancaster campus.
  • Nov. 18, 9:30-11:30 a.m., SV 3B, Palmdale Center, 1529 E. Palmdale Blvd., Palmdale.
  • Nov. 18, 4-5:15 p.m., BE 245, Lancaster campus.

The workshops are open to students planning to attend AVC in fall 2011, as well as current AVC students planning to transfer to a four-year university.

Students will receive assistance in filling out an application and learn about standards being applied by scholarship screening committees.

Students are required to have a 2.0 grade point average. Family financial status is not a factor for many of the scholarships.

Interested students can register for the free workshops in advance by contacting Sandi Rogers, (661) 722-6300, ext. 6860, or e-mail,

The deadline for submitting scholarship applications to the Antelope Valley College Financial Aid Office is 4:30 p.m. Jan. 14, 2011.
