TVCC Foundation Scholarships

 

The Purpose Of The Foundation Scholarship Program

Trinity Valley Community College Foundation is committed to our mission to support the college by having funds available to provide scholarships to students desiring an education.

 

How Foundation Scholarships Can Be Used

A Foundation scholarship can be used to cover the direct and indirect costs of education depending on donor agreements. This includes: the purchase of books, payment of fees and tuition, miscellaneous related expenses and the costs of room and board.

All Foundation scholarships are awarded in May of each year and split evenly between Fall and Spring. Students who receive a scholarship for the Fall semester, must maintain the GPA, hours and other requirements outlined in the scholarship parameters in order to receive their awarded scholarship in the Spring. 

 

Eligibility To Apply

Any TVCC student is encouraged to apply for a Foundation scholarship.  Each scholarship has individual requirements based on the donor wishes through scholarship MOU agreements.

For scholarships that require the student to reside in the TVCC service area, students must live in one of the following school districts: 

Athens, Brownsboro, Canton, Cayuga, Chandler, Crandall, Cross Roads, Edgewood, Elkhart, Eustace, Forney, Frankston, Fruitvale, Kaufman, Kemp, LaPoynor, Mabank, Malakoff, Martins Mill, Murchison, Neches, Palestine, Rains, Scurry-Rosser, Slocum, Terrell, Trinidad, Westwood and Wills Point.

For scholarships that require the student to reside in the TVCC tax district, students must live in one of the following school districts: 

Athens, Brownsboro, Chandler, Crandall, Cross Roads, Eustace, Frankston, Kaufman, Kemp, LaPoynor, Mabank, Malakoff, Murchison, Palestine, Scurry-Rosser, Terrell, and Trinidad.

 

Criteria To Apply

  • Unless otherwise noted in the scholarship eligibility criteria, a student must be enrolled as a full-time status for most scholarships (nursing scholarships are a minimum of 3 hours)
  • Each Foundation scholarship will be matched with the scholarship that best fits their needs and the criteria of each Foundation scholarship
  • Must meet all TVCC admission requirements as found in the TVCC Catalog.

 

Application Process

  • Applicants must complete and submit the  TVCC Foundation Scholarship Application  by June 15, 2020 (EXTENDED FROM APRIL 15th)of each year for fall and Spring semester Foundation scholarships. Summer scholarships are offered periodically.
  • Applications must have two signed letters of recommendation from non-family members.
  • Applications must include an essay from the student explaining their academic goals and objectives and why they desire the scholarship requested.  This must also include a list of volunteer and community activities the student has participated in.
  • Students who receive a Foundation scholarship, must attend the annual October Foundation scholarships ceremony. For 2020, the Foundation scholarship ceremony is Oct 29, 2020 at the Athens Country Club. Details of the ceremony are mailed to recipients in May.
  • Students who receive a Foundation scholarship, must email foundation@tvcc.edu or accept the award in person at the Institutional Advancement Office-1st Floor-Administration Building. Call Linda Land at 902-670-2620 if you need assistance. 
  • Scholarships available will be matched with needs of each student. 
  • Foundation scholarships can only be used at TVCC and cannot be transferred to other colleges or universities. The TVCC Foundation is working towards offering transfer scholarships in the near future. Stay tuned!
  • All Foundation scholarship recipients must maintain 2.0 to receive future foundation scholarships. Some Foundation scholarships require 2.5 or higher. 
  • Copy of all transcripts (high school, GED, other colleges or universities) as of date of application.
  • The deadline for applications is JUNE 15th, 2020 of the calendar year for consideration for fall and spring awards. Summer awards are offered periodically.
  • After the scholarship committee convenes and makes awards, recipients will receive notification of their award in May in writing.

 

Ongoing Requirements Of Foundation Scholarship Awards

If there is an unused balance of the award beyond the fall semester; the student can carry those funds to the spring semester within the same academic year provided all eligibility requirements have been maintained. 

If the Foundation award is not used within the same academic year, it will go back into the Foundation scholarship fund for future use by other TVCC students. 

 

The Value Of Each Scholarship

The value of Foundation scholarship awards vary by scholarship. The value of a specific scholarship will be noted in the letter that students receive when notified. Most awards range from $500-$2,000.

The TVCC Foundation awards two types of scholarships to its students; Endowed and Non-Endowed.

  • Endowed scholarships are set-up to be funded in perpetuity with the corpus of the donor gift intact and only the earnings awarded to students.
  • Non-endowed funds are funded on an as needed basis and the entire donor fund can be awarded to zero dollars.
