The Victoria College Foundation provided over $1 million in support for Victoria College students through scholarships for the 2018-19 academic year.

The $1,013,484 total was an all-time high and benefitted 1,420 Victoria College students through scholarship support. Scholarship funds come from the generous donors throughout our community, businesses and foundations.

“It is extremely gratifying to reach this $1,000,000 milestone,” said VC Foundation President Penni Gietz. “The Victoria College Foundation continually pursues avenues of funding for Victoria College, its programs, classrooms and facilities – that ultimately benefits VC students. We are truly grateful for the generosity of donors and the impact that they have on our students.”

The Foundation is accepting scholarship applications for the 2020-2021 academic year.  Once students have applied and received acceptance to Victoria College they can then apply for our scholarships. In addition to the traditional academic scholarships Victoria College also officers workforce scholarships year-round. Students are able to apply for both Academic and Workforce Scholarships at 

“Providing scholarships is an essential component of the Foundation’s mission of supporting Victoria College students,” VC Foundation Executive Director Amy Mundy said. “When students are able to focus on studies, rather than worry about funding their education, it empowers them to move forward on their educational journey.”
