After completing the SBVC Online Scholarship Application, what happens next?

  • The SBVC Scholarship Committee begins the selection process which takes place from March-April.  We read hundreds of applications and have a series of meetings to make selections. 
  • In May, the final scholarship decisions are made and notifications are sent to students via their SBVC Student Email account. We do NOT send notifications by mail or phone. Don't miss out on scholarship awards because you are not using your Valley College student email account! If you do not respond to your email notification in May, your award could go to another student. All new scholarship announcements are also sent to students through their student email, so checking your Valley College account at least once a week could result in even more scholarship opportunities for you. For more information on how to access your SBVC Student Email contact the HELP desk for technical support.
  • All scholarship recipients are invited to attend the annual Scholarship Awards Ceremony in May when they will be honored and recognized for their achievement.
  • The scholarship funds are disbursed in June and recipients are notified via their student email account when the funds are released.
