Rock Valley College Foundation Announces 2010-2011 Scholarship Awards

Posted: Friday, October 15, 2010

Media Contact: Nancy Chamberlain, 815-921-4517

This year, spurred by our ailing economy, the Rock Valley College Foundation received hundreds of applications for scholarships. Thanks to the commitment and generosity of our donors, the RVC Foundation was able to award over $130,000 in scholarships for the 2010-2011 academic 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 awards for multiple students.  In addition, sixteen unendowed scholarships were awarded this year.

To learn more about how to apply for a scholarship or you wish to donate to help fund the education of an aspiring, young student call (815) 921-4507.
