With a new campus set to open in downtown Orlando in August, Valencia College officials have unveiled four new scholarships for students attending classes there. To receive the scholarships, students must enroll as degree-seeking students or be working toward a certificate at Valencia College Downtown, the campus that Valencia will share with the University of Central Florida.

The scholarships will range from $200 to $600.

The scholarships are designed for:

  • New Valencia College students who enroll for classes at the downtown campus;
  • Valencia students who are currently majoring in an A.S. degree program that is relocating to the downtown campus (digital media, health information technology, new media communication, culinary or hospitality) ;
  • UnionWest Resident Scholarship, for students who will be living at the new downtown campus; and
  • Downtown Community Scholarship, for new students who live in zip codes 32801 or 32805.

Students may be eligible for more than one scholarship.

Students do not need to fill out an application to receive the scholarships; Valencia College’s financial aid department will award the scholarships based on enrollment information.
