The QVCC Foundation is pleased to offer over $135,000 annually. If you are interested in applying for QVCC Foundation scholarships for the 2021-2022 academic year, check back on February 1, 2021.

Most scholarships are available to students who will attend QVCC in the 2020-2021 academic year and have a GPA of 3.0 or better. We recommend that scholarship applicants carefully review individual scholarship criteria.

All scholarship applications and supporting documents are accepted between February 1 and March 12, 2021 at noon. It is the scholarship applicant’s responsibility to ensure that the packet is complete and on time. Failure to do so will void the application.

  • Application (Online only, see red link at top of page)
  • Official transcript – current students can access through MyCommNet
