How does the Next Step Scholarship work?
Canadian Valley's Next Step Scholarship waives the tuition for full-time career programs and for Adult Career and Community Development (ACCD) courses for most programs and courses. Scholarship recipients are required to pay for student fees, books, clothing and any other materials needed for that program. Students are awarded a maximum of two program scholarships.
Who is eligible for a Next Step Scholarship?
The Next Step Scholarship is designed for individuals under age 24 who have a high school diploma or GED and are living in one of of our partner-school districts. A scholarship recipient who turns 24 during the academic year will be able to finish the remainder of that academic year tuition-free. For all subsequent career programs and classes, the student will be required to pay tuition. The student will still be able to apply for financial aid or a foundation scholarship. Currently enrolled high school students will also be eligible to use a Next Step Scholarship for short-term classes offered through the Adult Career and Community Development department. These students attend with no tuition or course fees. Books and supplies still apply.
