Reynolds General Scholarship Program
Reynolds Community College offers a variety of scholarships to students with diverse interests and backgrounds. Every year, the Reynolds Scholarship Office awards more than half a million dollars in scholarships to students who qualify for this financial assistance. Individual scholarship awards can range from $100 to $4,000, with an average award of $1,500. Reynolds scholarships are established by gifts to the Reynolds Community College Educational Foundation and awarded by the Reynolds Scholarship Committee. Additional information on the application process can be found in the FAQ section of this page.
There is one common application that prospective and current students should complete to be considered for all available scholarships. The application window opens from December 1 to March 1 every year. Additional information on the application process can be found in the FAQ section of this page.
The Reynolds Common Scholarship Application for the 2020-21 academic year is now closed. If you applied for a scholarship, you should receive information about your award status by June 30, 2020. Be sure to check your Reynolds email for information. The Scholarship Office may also contact you by text message.
VFCCE-Walmart Workforce Certification Exam Scholarship
If you are required to sit for an industry certification test as part of your Reynolds program, you may be eligible for a reimbursement if you pass it. Through a partnership with Walmart and the Virginia Foundation for Community College Education (VFCCE) students with a passing grade will be reimbursed up to $200 on a first-come, first-served basis, upon meeting all application and reporting requirements. You must show proof of a passing grade for consideration. Students are not eligible for more than one award. Apply here.
The Reynolds Common Scholarship Application window will reopen December 1, 2020 through March 1, 2021. These funds are for use in the 2021-22 academic year.
Top Tips for Scholarship Applicants
Tip 1: If you have not completed your federal financial aid form (FAFSA), be sure to do so. Demonstrating financial need is an important factor for scholarship eligibility. Even with financial aid, you might still benefit from a scholarship award. For more information on financial aid, visit Financial Aid Central.
Tip 2: Don’t rush through your essay questions in the application. Give these some thought and do a spelling and grammar check before submitting. Describing your goals and your need for financial assistance helps the Scholarship Committee learn about you and your unique circumstances. Tell us what sets you apart.
Tip 3: Actually submit your application. Working on your application and not submitting it is like leaving an important purchase in your shopping cart. Set aside some quiet time to work on, complete, and submit your application – in one setting, if possible. Many students complete their applications in less than an hour.
Tip 4: Just like with FAFSA, you must reapply for scholarship consideration each academic year. You will not receive an automatic renewal of scholarship funds from one year to the next.
