Scholarships are generally based on your academic record but are sometimes based upon demonstrated financial need or both. You may need to submit applications, write letters and essays, or be interviewed as part of the scholarship application process, so start your research early. Keep in mind that being eligible for a scholarship doesn't guarantee you'll receive one. 

AVC Foundation Scholarships


The AVC Foundation has over 200 scholarships available to students each year. When applying for a Foundation scholarship, students simply fill out one application, and their application is screened for all scholarships for which they are eligible. 

Foundation scholarships are awarded once a year.
