SVCF Managed Scholarships

SVCF Managed Scholarships support a variety of students. While some scholarships focus on academic achievement, school and community service and specific majors, others seek to motivate students who show academic potential. Most programs consider financial need or unusual hardships.

In 2018, we awarded 142 SVCF Managed Scholarships with awards totaling over $763,000.

Scholarship deadlines have passed, we encourage you to view each scholarship’s profile and application instructions to prepare for the 2019 scholarship season, which will launch in early December.
