This year, spurred by our ailing economy, the Rock Valley College Foundation received more applications for scholarships than ever before.  Thanks to the commitment and generosity of our donors, the RVC Foundation was able to award over $120,000 in scholarships for the 2009-2010 school year. 

The RVC Foundation administers more than 50 endowed (permanently funded) scholarships with criteria that range from academic ability or geographic region, to those that focus on a particular area of study.  Many endowed scholarships fund scholarships for multiple students.  In addition, about a dozen unedowed scholarships were awarded this year.

If you would like to know more about how you may apply for a scholarship or you wish to donate to help fund the education of an aspiring, young student, we invite you to call (815) 921-4507.
