Almost Half the Cost of a Florida University


Scholarships

Scholarships are a form of financial aid that do not require repayment. Valencia College’s F-1 international students may be eligible for scholarships from a Florida-Linkage Institute, the Valencia College Foundation, through private scholarship funds or through the Valencia College Global Achievers Award. Valencia College offers three Global Achiever Awards: to first time in college international applicants, international college transfer applicants, and transfer applicants from Valencia College’s Intensive English program. Please review the eligibility for each scholarship below. Please note that you can only apply for one scholarship.

Florida-Linkage scholarships are available to students from certain regions/countries. These awards cover the out-of-state portion of tuition and fees. The Valencia College Foundation offers a number of privately funded scholarships to support current students. As a current international student you can submit an application through the Valencia Foundation scholarship application portal to be considered. See below for eligibility for the Valencia College Global Achievers Award.


Valencia College offers an affordable alternative to a public university, with a tuition rate that is 40 percent less. We also offer an interest-free tuition installment plan.
