Wenatchee Valley College (WVC) awards scholarships to approximately 200 students annually. Amounts vary up to full tuition.

All WVC students are encouraged to apply.

2020-2021: All scholarships for this year have been awarded
Applicants for the 2021-2022 year will receive notifications no later than July 2021. Notifications will be sent to the email listed on your application. Scholarships are awarded for one academic year; therefore, students must re-apply each year.
Part-time students are eligible for many scholarships and only a few scholarships have a minimum GPA requirement.
Students that receive awards must meet individual scholarship criteria to continue receiving the scholarship during the school year. The criteria will be outlined in the award email sent to selected students.
The WVC scholarship application covers all of the scholarships available. Students do not need to apply for specific scholarships, as the selection committee will match applicants using the application materials submitted.
Scholarship recipients are encouraged to submit a thank you letter. Letters are submitted online, through AwardSpring. Instructions will be sent to all recipients.
All current and incoming WVC students including adult learners, part-time students and DREAMers are eligible to apply. There are scholarships for every area of study.
Many scholarships are renewable, meaning students can receive the same scholarship multiple years in a row. All students that received a scholarship last year are required to re-apply using the general scholarship application.
The athletic department gives athletic awards to students who are participants of WVC’s intercollegiate athletic teams. Inquiries regarding athletic scholarships should be directed to the athletic director or individual sport coach.
Service, business and professional organizations, as well as private citizens, donate money to fund student scholarships on the basis of different criteria such as academic achievement, financial need, commitment to training, involvement in the community, or military service. Scholarship applications are typically available for next year's awards as early as October. Most application deadlines occur during fall and winter quarters.
