All Opportunities

Welcome to the RVC Foundation online scholarship opportunities portal!
To create your application log in, click the yellow button above, right. REMEMBER! All RVC student ID numbers start with a lower case “s”. All correspondence about your scholarship application and any awards you may receive will be done through your student email.

Below is a comprehensive list of all RVC Foundation scholarships available to applicants, with brief information about the scholarship selection criteria. You are not required to select individual scholarships for which you would like to receive consideration, as the auto-match feature of the application will automatically match you with the scholarships for which you meet the minimum eligibility criteria. To apply to scholarships, you must first sign in with your Rock Valley College student ID and password. Click the Sign In button above right. NOTE: Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11) is not fully compatible with the Rock Valley College Foundation scholarship application portal, and many features of the site will not work using IE. For optimal compatibility, sign in using any of the newer browsers, such as: Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Apple Safari.

Before you start, make sure you have completed the enrollment process at Rock Valley College. Only then will you receive a student ID number. All applicants must have one, including 3rd and 4th year NIU students in the NIU@RVC Engineering Program.

What to Expect:
• You will be presented with the general application after logging in. The general application opens February 4th and closes March 20th for Engineering applicants and April 10th for all other programs.
• After you have completed your General Application, the system will automatically match you to ALL scholarships you are eligible for based on the information you provided in your application and your academic record.
• You may also be recommended to apply for certain additional scholarships. Please review the scholarship selection criteria to determine your eligibility. Apply only to those you are qualified for.
• After completing each of these steps, you can see your application status on your dashboard. If your status is not listed as “submitted”, you have not fully completed your application.
• If you are selected to receive a scholarship, you will receive an email notification to your student email address. Note: Qualifying/Matching does not guarantee you will receive a scholarship.

The date under the Actions column indicates the date by which your General Application and the answers to any additional questions must be submitted to receive consideration. This is not the deadline to accept the award.

Additional scholarship opportunities may become available after the General Scholarship Application has been completed. It is your responsibility to log in to the RVC Foundation’s online scholarship opportunities portal frequently for additional scholarships that may become available.

About next year – your completed general application will be archived and removed from the system each year. You must complete a new general application starting the first Monday in February of each year.
