External Scholarships

What is an External Scholarship? An external agency administers these opportunities which are not managed by the Alamo Colleges (District) Foundation nor NVC. Requests to post announcements of external scholarships on this NVC table can be sent to nvc-cares@alamo.edu.

Where do I send a check for a student who is receiving an external scholarship? ATTN: Financial Aid Office at Northwest Vista College 3535 North Ellison Drive San Antonio, TX 78251. If possible, please note student name & Banner ID#, and/or date of birth and social security number on a letter and/or check.
