Annual IVC Scholarships

We have recently made some changes to the Scholarship Program here at Imperial Valley College.  Below is a listing for the Annual IVC Scholarships.  These scholarships are available to all IVC students for the upcoming academic year.  We no longer offer scholarships each semester - we have combined all of our scholarships to be Annual Scholarships (that is to say - there is not only one application period (March 1st through April 30th, annually) and only one scholarship distribution (once a year before the Fall Semester starts).  

Book Scholarships are annually based as well, but since they target students who do not qualify for Financial Aid, we have developed a special page and application specific to these scholarships (click here for more information).  

*An exception to this are the Nursing Scholarships (click here for more information).  Those scholarships remain by semester, and are only available for students in the IVC Nursing Program.
