Ventura College Foundation Seeks Sponsors for Student Scholarship Events

These events are a way to show our students how much the community appreciates their commitment to their education.
VENTURA, Calif. - March 18, 2019 - PRLog -- The Ventura College Foundation is seeking sponsors for several Ventura College student scholarship award events scheduled for April and May.

The inaugural Allied Health Scholarship Awards ceremony will be held Saturday, April 13 at Ventura College's Wright Event Center. This new scholarship event will honor Ventura College students interested in paramedic, nursing and other medical fields.

The 20th Annual Phoenix Scholarship Awards will be held Thursday, April 18 also at Ventura College's Wright Event Center. The Phoenix Scholarship Program was established in 1999 by VC Foundation board members to support Ventura College re-entry students. Phoenix Scholarships are designed to assist students who have minimal or no resources to pay for their education and have chosen to return to school after a break in education.  The recipients are selected based on each student's academic goals and progress, together with their financial need.

The 32nd Annual Scholarship Awards luncheon will be held Saturday, May 4 at the Crowne Plaza Ventura Beach. All currently enrolled Ventura College students have access to just under 300 different scholarships through the VC Foundation.

"These events are a way to show our students how much the community appreciates their commitment to their education," says Rob van Nieuwburg, Ventura College Foundation board chair. "Our sponsors' support makes these events truly memorable for these students who have worked so hard to succeed despite sometimes daunting odds."

Sponsorship opportunities range from Gold Chest sponsors ($500) to presenting Black Pearl sponsor ($10,000). For more information, contact Gerry Pantoja at 805-289-6158,
