Educational Foundation Scholarships - Central Virginia Community College

CVCC Educational Foundation Scholarships

  • The primary period during which the CVCC Educational Foundation (Foundation) makes the majority of its scholarship awards is from April 1st through July 31st for the upcoming school year with classes starting in late August. The application period for the upcoming academic year opens on February 1st. Most scholarship awards are an annual commitment for both the fall and spring semesters. However, the Foundation generally has some limited scholarship funding for the spring and summer semesters, so it is worth contacting us to see if that is the case.
  • The Foundation scholarship process is all online, and the general application for all scholarships can be located through this link cvcc.academicworks.com
  • Prior to submitting the Foundation Scholarship Application, students must:
    1. Apply for admission to Central Virginia Community College.
    2. Enroll in a curriculum at CVCC. (Call the Counseling Office at 434-832-7800 to schedule an appointment.).
    3. Apply for Federal Student Aid. Use the FAFSA website at www.fafsa.ed.gov to apply, and call the Financial Aid Office at 434-832-7814 with any questions or to schedule an appointment.
  • Foundation scholarships can be used for tuition and required fees only. Any financial aid from Federal or state grants must be used first to pay tuition and fees, and the foundation scholarships are used second to pay any remaining tuition and fees. Scholarship amounts not needed for tuition and fees are returned to the foundation and are not refunded to the student.
  • Because our funding is limited, Foundation scholarships are not available to students paying out-of-state tuition.
  • For additional information, the Foundation staff can be reached by email at foundation@cvcc.vccs.edu, by phone at 434-832-7292, or in our offices at Merritt Hall room 5116, CVCC, 3506 Wards Road, Lynchburg, VA 24502.
