Need Help Paying for College? VGCC Can Help!


The Vance-Granville Community College Foundation has announced that the scholarship application period for its 2023 Fall Academic Year is now open. The priority deadline for full scholarship consideration for Fall 2023 is May 31.

“We know our students are often already working, raising families, and going to college in their spare time. At VGCC, we work to help them graduate with as little debt as possible,” said VGCCF Executive Director Tanya Weary.

The VGCC Foundation has over 300 endowed scholarships based on merit, financial need, degree choice, and more. Scholarships are awarded individually to curriculum students based on criteria outlined for each award. Selection will be based on an overall assessment of academic performance, leadership skills, character, and community service.

Scholarship funding is limited, and completion of the application does not guarantee an award. All applicants must have a minimum of a 2.0 GPA to be considered for a Vance-Granville Community College Foundation scholarship; many scholarships require a minimum 3.0 GPA. Scholarship recipients are selected by a scholarship selection committee unless otherwise stipulated in the criteria of the scholarship.

The Vance-Granville Community College Foundation scholarships are made possible through the generous support of private citizens, organizations, and businesses. To apply for VGCCF scholarships, visit For additional questions, contact
