SVC Foundation Scholarships

The Sauk Valley College Foundation Scholarship Program was founded at the same time the College opened its doors in 1966. The purpose of the program is to provide, through community support, scholarship funds for students attending Sauk Valley Community College. These scholarships enable many students to continue their education and begin productive and satisfying careers in our community.

Scholarships are supported annually by alumni, family, friends, and local employers and organizations. This past year the Foundation has processed over $180,000 in scholarships, and other forms of financial assistance, to needy students.

One of the greatest priorities of the College is to provide our students with the financial assistance necessary to achieve their educational goals. It now costs a full-time student at SVCC approximately $1600 per semester for tuition, with additional costs for fees and books. While this is an educational bargain, many students still need financial assistance. It is the generosity of the community which helps provide this needed support.
