If you're a student at Victoria College with plans to transfer to UT or Texas A&M, there's a new scholarship available that you may not be aware of.

Current Victoria College students who plan to transfer to Texas A&M University-College Station or The University of Texas at Austin can apply for a 2019-20 VC Student Transfer Endowment Scholarship.

The VC Student Transfer Endowment Scholarship was established to provide financial support for students who begin their higher education here, securing a strong foundation before transferring to these universities.

The Victoria College Student Transfer Endowment Scholarship was established in November 2000, with initial funding provided by the M.G. & Lillie A. Johnson Foundation. Over $125,000 in scholarships have been awarded.

Four $3,500 scholarships will be awarded to current Victoria College students who have been accepted to either Texas A&M University-College Station or The University of Texas at Austin. Applicants must earn a minimum of 24 semester hours by the end of this spring semester to be eligible.

The deadline to apply is Friday, April 26. Click here for information or, contact Susan Prukop at (361) 582-2419 or Susan.Prukop@VictoriaCollege.edu.
