The deadline to apply for student scholarships at Moraine Valley Community College has been extended to Tuesday, June 30.

“We know our students are faced with unexpected financial challenges, especially now. The timeframe to apply has been lengthened to be sure nothing stood in the way of applying for a scholarship they deserve and need to fulfill their college dreams,” said Patti Friend, director of Alumni and Annual Giving.

Available scholarships include those for students in specific programs of study, such as nursing, business, education, science, education and more, and for special interests such as volunteerism, returning adults, single parents and veterans. The average GPA required for scholarships is 2.5. Scholarship amounts range from $250 to $5,000.
