List of Scholarships

Vance-Granville Community College's scholarships are awarded individually to curriculum students based on criteria outlined for each award. Academic standing and need basis are factors in determining the recipients, but they are not the primary criteria in all cases. Scholarship recipients are selected by a scholarship selection committee unless otherwise stipulated in the criteria of the scholarship. Priority deadline dates for full consideration to receive scholarships relating to each academic year are late March and mid-June.

The VGCC Endowment Fund and the VGCC Scholarship Program award three levels of scholarships made possible by the contributions of various individuals, businesses, industries, civic clubs, churches and organizations.
