The RCCD Foundation and our colleagues in Financial Aid are hard at work ensuring that the annual scholarship process is not interrupted.
To all students who have applied for scholarships this year, please be advised that scholarships will still be awarded this spring and disbursements will begin in the fall as normal. Financial Aid will notify you about any scholarships you've been awarded by the end of May. If you have any questions please contact the Foundation office at (951) 222-8626 or your financial aid office.
Scholarships are financial aid awards designed to help you pay for your education. Scholarships can be a one-time award or renewable and may require that certain academic or demographic qualifications be met. Moreno Valley College has opportunities to apply for scholarships through the RCCD Foundation, through MVC-sponsored programs and competitions, as well as outside scholarship resources. Below is a collection of scholarships available directly to MVC students.
