Please see How to Apply for Scholarships below for NEW application submission instructions.
The Skagit Valley College Foundation offers a wide variety of scholarships each year to eligible students. To apply, all applicants must submit the one-page Scholarship Application Form and a one-page (maximum) essay about themselves. High School and/or College Transcripts may also be required from certain applicants. Go to How to Apply for Scholarships below to get started.
Applications for the 2017-2018 academic year will be accepted from November 28, 2016 until 5:00pm on March 10, 2017. No early or late applications will be accepted.
The application period for the Sidney S. McIntyre, Jr. Skagit Valley College Memorial Scholarship will also open on November 28, 2016. This scholarship is for students majoring in the Basic or Applied Sciences that were enrolled Fall 2016, or are enrolled Winter 2017, and are planning on transferring to a four-year public university in the state of Washington beginning Fall 2017, upon graduation from SVC. Students must have a cumulative college level GPA of 3.0 or higher. Other criteria may apply. This is a separate application from the Foundation Scholarships noted above, and eligible students can pick up an application packet at the Mount Vernon or Whidbey Island Financial Aid Office during the open application period. Letters of recommendation are a part of the application process. Should you be requesting a letter from SVC faculty, please do so as early as possible. The application closing date is during Spring break and faculty may not be on campus or available at that time. It is highly recommended that letters be requested well before March 1st in order to allow for adequate processing time.
The deadline for this year's application period is 5:00pm on March 10, 2017. All application materials must be received at the SVC Financial Aid Office, or postmarked, by this date. No early or late applications will be accepted.
