Victoria College students planning to transfer to either Texas A&M University at College Station or The University of Texas at Austin have an opportunity to apply for the VC Transfer Student Endowed Scholarship.
Applicants must have completed or be in the process of completing 24 semester credit hours from Victoria College. This may include hours for which the applicant is currently enrolled.
Applicants for consideration are not limited to Victoria County residents. Any student attending VC who meets the selection criteria will be considered. Students awarded a scholarship must gain admission acceptance to either Texas A&M University at College Station or The University of Texas at Austin.
Two scholarships will be awarded to students transferring to both universities. Each scholarship will be $2,500 and will be awarded at $1,250 per semester.
