START Scholarship Program

START @ DVC was founded in Fall 2008 with the mission of promoting access to all available resources at Diablo Valley College and laying the foundation for student success for current and former foster youth attending DVC. To that end, START is excited to award two* $500 scholarships during the spring semester. Successful scholarship recipients will have demonstrated academic success at DVC and commitment to their educational goals while participating in the START @ DVC program.
