About scholarships


Scholarships are monetary or in-kind awards made to help support a student's education. Scholarship awards may be awarded on the basis of academic or personal achievement. High school students entering Diablo Valley College, continuing DVC students, and students transferring to four-year colleges and universities will find many opportunities to compete for scholarships. Generally, there are two types of scholarships available to DVC students, DVC scholarships and external scholarships.


DVC scholarships are available to DVC students that are enrolled in at least six units throughout the academic year and plan to be a continuing student at DVC or transferring to a four-year college or university. Students apply for DVC Scholarships through the DVC AcademicWorks Online Scholarship Application. The DVC Scholarship Program is directly supported by donor contributions made through the DVC Foundation.


External scholarships are available to high school or college students from individuals and organizations outside of the DVC campus. These scholarships may have different eligibility criteria and/or distinct application processes so make sure you research external scholarship opportunities thoroughly. DVC provides an extensive list of external scholarship opportunities within the DVC AcademicWorks Online Scholarship Application tool.
