Making a Difference in Our Community: Thank You to the Valencia Foundation Summer Scholarship CommitteeShare
Recipients of Valencia Scholarships
Each year, the Valencia Foundation awards thousands of dollars in scholarships to make college accessible to any student with a thirst for learning and the will to succeed. What many don’t realize, however, is that awarding these scholarships is a monumental effort. This summer, for example, the Valencia Scholarship Committee combed through more than 2,000 student applications to ultimately award more than 1,000 scholarships worth an excess of $500,000 in total.
This committee’s work is crucial to fulfilling Valencia’s mission, and the Valencia Foundation and the College are grateful for committee members’ time and diligence in awarding these scholarships.
