Valencia College Scholarship Series

Our goal is to engage with students on the scholarship process and encourage them to apply. The four-part comprehensive series includes resources to help with scholarship applications, an essay writing workshop, presentations from Florida Institutions, and scholarship opportunities for all students.

We show students how to apply for Valencia College Foundation Scholarships, but the information presented throughout the series applies to any scholarship students want to apply for. Students who attend & participate each session, will have the opportunity to play the quiz to win that sessions prize! Additionally, a grand prize drawing will be held at the end of the series, must be present, participate, and have your camera on for all four Zoom sessions to be entered into the grand prize drawing.

Spring 2024 Valencia College Scholarship Series

Current students, Dual enrollment students, and International students are encouraged to attend.

"I was able to connect with the hosts as they gave us real-life examples of their essays and tips and tricks to stick out to donors!"

"I am more confident now in applying for scholarships and how to start with my foundation first (writing my story) to help you apply for scholarships. Everyone has a story to tell and to not feel ashamed in telling your story because you can inspire others!"

"I loved that I was able to learn about new scholarship opportunities within and Outside Valencia College."

"I think it’s a great opportunity for me as an international student to learn more about scholarships and how to conquer them through my essay and how to improve it."
