Our Opportunities



Welcome to the Diablo Valley College Scholarship Application Portal! The 2023 application is now open!


To apply for DVC scholarships, you must be enrolled in a minimum of 6.0 units at DVC for the Fall 2022 semester, be planning to enroll in a minimum of 6.0 units at DVC for the Spring 2023 semester, and have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 at DVC. The deadline to submit your application is Thursday, February 16, 2023 at 11:59 p.m.

To access the application, click on the “Sign In” button in the upper right hand corner of the page and log in using your DVC InSite username and password.


Please complete the General Application. You may save your application at any time by clicking on the Save and Keep Editing button at the bottom of the form.

After you complete and submit your General Application, you may receive a prompt to complete additional questions for one or more scholarships (recommended opportunities). Please note that these “recommended opportunities” are NOT the scholarships to which your application has been matched. These are scholarships that require the completion of additional questions. You may or may not meet the requirements for these recommended opportunities. If you do meet the requirements, click on the “Apply” button and answer the additional questions so that you will be considered for these recommended opportunities. If you do not meet the requirements for the recommended opportunities, you do not need to complete the questions associated with these scholarships. Be sure, however, to complete the General Application so that you are considered for all of the other scholarships.

Your application will later be matched to the scholarships for which you meet the minimum requirements. Being matched to a scholarship by meeting the minimum eligibility criteria does not guarantee that you will receive a scholarship.

Listed below are several DVC scholarship opportunities. This listing is for your information only, and the availability of these scholarships is subject to change.

You are not required to select individual scholarships for which you would like to receive consideration, as the auto-match feature will automatically match your application with the scholarships for which you meet the minimum eligibility criteria.
