The Moraine Valley Foundation has extended the deadline for current and potential students to apply for scholarships to May 31. The Foundation awards over 300 scholarships each year to Moraine Valley Community College students that range from $250 to $5,000.

The scholarship application can be completed online at

The Foundation scholarships can offset the cost of tuition, books, fees and supplies for Moraine Valley students. Each scholarship has specific requirements, but students only need to complete one application, and it will automatically be applied to any scholarships they may qualify for. Scholarships are awarded based on criteria such as financial need, field of study, academic achievement, career choice, personal accomplishments, volunteerism and more.

Scholarships are available for full- and part-time students, whether or not they receive financial aid. Details about the scholarships and the application process can be found at
