To learn more about DVC scholarships and their requirements, please see the list in the Online DVC Scholarship Application portal.
DVC students may apply through the Online DVC Scholarship Application portal beginning Wednesday, October 26, 2016; the application deadline is Thursday, February 16, 2017 at 11:59 p.m. You only need to fill out the application once and it will automatically match your application with scholarships you meet the requirements for.
To find the application, click the "Sign In" button in the upper right hand corner of the application portal page. You will be asked to enter your InSite login to access the application. You may save and return to your application at any time during the application period.
For more details on how to apply, see our DVC scholarship application instructions.
You will be required to upload your unofficial DVC transcript as part of the application process. See our instructions on accessing your unofficial transcripts on Insite.
You must provide two references:
Recommendation forms submitted by family members, relatives, or friends will not be considered.
After you enter your reference's information in the online application, the system will automatically send a request to their email address with a link to submit the recommendation form. It is a good idea to ask permission before you submit their information. You can log in to your application and click on the "references" tab to make sure your references have submitted the forms.
Please note that it is recommended DVC faculty and staff complete no more than three references for DVC scholarship applicants. If more than three are submitted, the DVC Scholarship Committee asks the faculty or staff member to vary their wording as much as possible.
Notifications will be emailed by April 30, 2017. The email will have details about the scholarship, including name, amount, and information on how you will receive the award. Students who are not awarded scholarships will be notified in the spring term.
