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.

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.
