FAQ

HOW WILL I BE ABLE TO ACCESS MY SCHOLARSHIP?

A scholarship is a gift – not to be confused with any kind of financial aid or the BOGG Waiver (now known as the California Promise). You earn this scholarship by submitting a successful application and demonstrating you are working hard to achieve your goals.

HOW WILL I BE ABLE TO ACCESS MY SCHOLARSHIP?

While our goal is to disburse funding as soon as possible, money must be received in the Foundation office by the donor first. Some funding may come later in the semester. Be prepared to pay your own expenses and get reimbursed.

Scholarship balances are automatically distributed after the last add/drop date. Be sure your address is correct on file with Admission and Records since the balance will be mailed!

Can I use funds at the rams bookstore?

Of course! Bookstore vouchers can be requested after fees are paid by the Bursar. Once awarded, please reach out to the Foundation office as soon as possible to discuss how we can best help you obtain material from the Rams Bookstore. 

Where do the scholarships come from?

Local donors and organizations work to provide scholarships and various other opportunities to students in the Victor Valley region. Most of our donors are local and from this area – many are alumni! They work hard and volunteer their time, talents, and treasures to help fund scholarship funds. 

How can I thank my donors?

You can thank your donors by sending in a Thank You letter to the Foundation office in which we then forward on to those who support! Virtual Thank Yous are also an option utilizing ThankView communication from the Foundation office. 

Your success is a huge thank-you to your donors! They invest in you because they know you’re capable of making your educational dreams come true. 

There are many more who will come behind you who will need the same financial help – make a difference in someone else’s life who you have never met, the same way you may never meet the donor who cared enough to invest in your education.

I'm planning to transfer soon...can I still apply?

You should definitely apply! If the scholarship is confirmed to be transferrable:

You must provide transfer school id # and registration statement to the Foundation office in order for funds to be transferred to the school you are attending. You can email that to one of the contacts above.
