Scholarships have changed the face of college campuses across America, assisting students who had at one time only dreamed of being able to attend college. Companies, organizations, and individuals that sponsor scholarships are looking for the potential in younger generations. Most scholarship donors realize that great potential is often discovered in unconventional people - many of which need resources in order to see their potential turned into success.  

Our AVC Foundation Scholarship donors  are important sources of support to our  students. Our scholarship donors all care about education and understand the importance of helping our students succeed.
