The Ventura College Foundation Scholarship cycle for 2018/2019 scholarships is now closed. Updates for the 2019/2020 cycle to come soon.
****For the students who have not yet been notified regarding the 18/19 Ventura College Foundation Scholarships, we appreciate your patience. While we have been working so hard to have award notifications to you by the end of this week, we unfortunately are just not ready to do so. Please do not call/email/drop in to ask about the status of your application. The volume of inquiries has been so high that it has delayed the awarding process. For the most up-to-date information on the status of your scholarship application, please continue to patiently check your @my.vcccd.edu email and thoroughly read the emails that you receive. We understand and appreciate your eagerness to hear back. We promise to notify you if you were awarded as well as if you were not. We will NOT leave you guessing.****
