Scholarships assist students with their educational expenses. In general, scholarships are categorized as gift aid, meaning they do not have to be repaid. In addition to the scholarships awarded via the admission and FAFSA process, TVCC offers several other scholarships. Entities outside of TVCC also offer numerous scholarship opportunities.  

Find complete lists of scholarships, requirements, and deadlines for applications in the current Trinity Valley Community College catalog. Some scholarships are renewable, but please note that you must re-apply for many of the scholarships each semester.

You can apply for any of the scholarships listed. You can even apply for more than one scholarship using the same application. Scholarship applications require an essay from the student, two letters of recommendation, and a copy of your high school transcript (even if you have already turned it in to another department of the college) or college transcripts from other schools attended.
