2017-2018 MVC Guardian Fund Scholarship

Posted June 7, 2017

The first recipients of the Guardian Fund Scholarship at Missouri Valley College have been selected for the 2017-2018 academic year. In total, $11,150 in scholarships were awarded to 17 students.

The Guardian Fund, an endowed scholarship program, exists to help bridge the gap in the amount for which a student is responsible, and will allow them to more affordably have the opportunity to obtain a baccalaureate degree.

Often times, the gap between the amount of money in scholarships, grants and loans and the cost of attending college becomes a burden to our students and their families, and ultimately, forces them to put their education on hold—sometimes periodically, but too often permanently.

“The Guardian Fund at Missouri Valley College, made possible by contributions from our alumni and friends, ensures the attainability of an affordable and high quality education,” said Dr. Bonnie Humphrey, MVC President.

In Fall 2016, 98% of MVC students received financial aid, which includes institutional or outside scholarships, or federal, state or private aid. The number of and award amounts for the Guardian Fund Scholarships are determined by the selection committee.

In order to be eligible for a Guardian Fund Scholarship, students must: be a continuing, full-time, face-to-face, Missouri Valley College undergraduate student; must be in good academic standing; and must demonstrate significant financial need. Students are required to submit an application, a personal statement and a statement of support from an MVC staff or faculty member.
