Running Start Pilot Scholarship Program Students can receive funding for their fees if they enroll over their eligibility. They may also receive a $10 bookstore voucher for every eligible credit they are enrolled in. The funding is available for Winter Quarter and potentially Spring, if any funds remain.
The funding is first-come, first-served and students must qualify in the following ways:
1.      Qualify for the low-income waiver at SVC and be coded as such in our system (requires proper signatures regarding   Free/Reduced Meals on the Running Start Enrollment Verification Form or an eligibility letter from the school district)
2.      Be enrolled in at least one Running Start course for the quarter they are applying for
3.      Have a college GPA of 2.0 (or have not yet established a college GPA)
