Getting Started

There are a number of ways for students at Ventura College to receive support towards the pursuit of their educational and career goals. The Ventura College Foundation backs several programs that are designed to provide both direct and indirect support for Ventura College students. These programs include the Ventura College Promise, the Textbook Lending Library and an array of scholarships.

VC Promise

VC Promise, the first in the state and now adopted at colleges nationwide, is a program where Ventura College students can have tuition cost of their first and second years of academic studies paid for by the Foundation.

Veterans Promise

The William and Helen Scarpino Veterans Promise Program covers the costs of Ventura College enrollment fees for the first year of U.S. veteran and U.S. active duty military students. This allows these students to reserve their GI Bill® for four-year University education.

Scholarships

More than 300 scholarships are available to Ventura College students who would benefit from the financial support and are ready and able to achieve their goals.

Textbook Support

The David P. Bianco Textbook Lending Library is a program where students can check out up to three textbooks to use for an entire semester, at no cost to them. The Reserve Collection allows students to check out textbooks for a couple of hours while at the Library and has a copy of every textbook in use each semester.

Get Involved!

If you’ve benefited from any of the Foundation's programs, our Student Ambassador Program is a great way to share the difference it’s made in your life with other students!
