A scholarship is more than a financial award,
it is the key that unlocks the future
The Ventura County Community Foundation Scholarship program is made possible thanks to the generosity and commitment of donors, including individuals, corporations, and organizations. VCCF primarily awards scholarships to Ventura County students who are pursuing higher education and/or career training.
The VCCF Scholarship Program opens doors of educational opportunity for students of all ages. We firmly believe that by affording access to higher education to individuals, our entire community is strengthened. A scholarship is more than a financial award—it is the key that unlocks the future for deserving students by building their confidence and removing obstacles that stand in the way of success.
