need-based scholarship

VCS will offer a limited number of need-based scholarships for the 2018-2019 academic year. The scholarship will be distributed in the form of a 25% reduction in tuition for families that qualify. Scholarship applications may be submitted at any time, but scholarship awards may only be applied to future semesters. Scholarship applications are considered in the order received.

Important Facts

  • The scholarship award per student is 25% of tuition. For this coming year, scholarship awards are limited to, at most, two students per family.
  • The scholarship application could take up to six weeks to process so we advise completing the application and submitting the requested documentation as soon as possible.
  • Scholarships are awarded each year based on family need, as determined by a Confidential Financial Analysis which is conducted by Confidential Financial Services (CFS) of Colorado Springs, CO. You will be responsible for the $30 fee this company collects to cover the cost of processing the form.
  • Scholarship awards are made on an annual basis. You will need to re-apply for the scholarship each year so that your eligibility can be re-confirmed.
  • The deadline for having a scholarship application submitted to CFS for the 2018-2019 school year is April 30th. 
  • The VCS application fee of $150 is fully refundable if you are unable to enroll due to not receiving a scholarship.
  • The scholarship applies to tuition for all courses and electives, but the scholarship does not apply to fees, books, uniforms, or other costs.
