Encouraging our area’s youth to work hard and follow their dreams is the purpose behind the GVEC Scholarship Program. Scholarships are awarded each year to graduating high school seniors who want to continue their education at college or trade school.

Once scholarship recipients are selected, GVEC holds a recognition luncheon to celebrate their accomplishments along with their families and school administrators.

Scholarships are for $2,500 and awarded in two disbursements: $1,250 for the fall semester and $1,250 for the spring semester at the recipient’s school of choice.

GVEC sends tuition reimbursement funds for the allotted semester upon receipt of the required information requested by GVEC. Recipients are responsible for providing GVEC with valid course enrollment in addition to paid tuition information in order for funds to be disbursed.
