The Foundation offers scholarships ranging from $250 to $5,000 for both incoming and current Moraine Valley students. These scholarships are gifts, which means students do not have to repay them or earn them by working.

Scholarships are based on a variety of qualifications, such as:

  • Outstanding academic achievement
  • Personal achievement
  • Financial need
  • Leadership skills
  • Community involvement
  • Programs and fields of study
  • Specific populations

All students – whether they already receive financial aid or not – are eligible to apply for scholarships. While many scholarships require students to complete a FAFSA form, there are some scholarships available for students who have not completed one.

You will be notified if you are receiving an award through your student email account in June or July. If you applied for a scholarship last year, you must apply again, as each year all applications are cleared and the process starts again Feb. 1.

You may apply for scholarships at any time throughout the year. However, the greatest number of scholarships are available in the application period that runs from Feb. 1 through the last day of spring semester classes.
