    The Ventura College Foundation was initially established for the purpose of raising funds for student scholarships. While our focus has expanded over the years, we continue to support our students through our scholarship program.

    Approximately 60% of Ventura College students each year are classified as low- to moderate-income students (e.g. students with a household income of $36,000 or less for a family of four).  Scholarships are a great way to ease the financial burden many of our students carry as they pursue their education and/or career.  Establish a scholarship and become part of an ever-growing group of donors making a difference in our students' lives.


    Quick Stats from 2021:

    • 400 scholarships were awarded to 228 students
    • $642,758 in scholarship support awarded
    • An average of $2,400 was awarded to continuing students
    • An average of $4,000 was awarded to students transferring to four-year universities

    The Ventura College Foundation is honored to work with individuals and organizations to award annual scholarships to the students of Ventura College. Donors may make a donation each year to award a scholarship to a qualified student who meets the donor criteria, including an area of study, merit, or interests. The minimum amount for an annual named scholarship is $1,200.
