Fulltime tuition at DVC is an affordable education for many students at $1,200 per year. However, for students with financial need or complex life situations, this tuition, coupled with the cost of critical wraparound needs such as books and supplies, transportation, and childcare make it seem impossible to achieve the education they so desire.

DVC Foundation's mission is to develop resources and relationships for DVC that ensure institutional excellence, and result in an exceptional educational experience for its students.
"Thank you for helping me fulfill my dream goal. As a first generation college student whose parents have no educational background, I never thought I would go this far with my studies. Being part of the Puente project has given me a boost of confidence to continue moving toward my goal of becoming a pediatrician. The DVC Foundation Scholarship will cover my Science and Math books when I transfer for UC Santa Cruz."
"Thank you for funding the DVC Foundation Scholarship. Your support makes college possible for us. Because of your support, I am transferring to U.C. Davis and will achieve my goal of becoming the first in my family to graduate college."
