All Opportunities

Thank you for your interest in the VCCF Scholarship Program. To successfully complete the application process, please review all the information below.

1. TRANSCRIPT REQUIREMENT: Your most recent transcript must be uploaded and your unweighted GPA must be visible on the uploaded transcript.

A. Request your most recent transcript from your academic advisor/school counselor.
B. Please upload a copy of the transcript as a PDF file. No other formats accepted.
Student profiles, screenshots of student profiles, or any other portals are not accepted. If you are a freshman in college, please also submit your high school transcripts for a more complete academic history.

2. RECOMMENDATIONS REQUIREMENT: Two recommendations are required. Reach out to two individuals who are willing to fill out a recommendation questionnaire link on your behalf. One of the individuals must be a teacher or school counselor. The second recommender can be a coach, pastor, employer, or someone who is not a family member. Recommendations from peers are not accepted. Enter the recommenders e-mail address and they will receive a link to the questionnaire to complete. Please give your recommenders as much advance notice as possible when requesting a reference – it is never too early to ask for a recommendation!

3. FINANCIAL DOCUMENTATION/PROOF OF INCOME REQUIREMENT: When filling out the application, you will need to enter you or your family’s most recent financial information. If you are a dependent, you will need your parents’/spouse’s total income from the most recent filing tax year. If you are an independent, you will need your total income for the most recent filing tax year. Many of our scholarships require applicants to demonstrate financial need.
