Encouraging our area’s youth to work hard and follow their dreams is the purpose behind the GVEC Scholarship Program. More than $37,000 is 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.
