VTCI Scholarship

The VTCI Scholarship Program awards 20 scholarships every year to deserving students in South Texas. Awards are selected independently by Scholarship America.

SAI will select the recipients.


20 awards of $12,000 each will be granted. Awards will be disbursed at $3,000 per year over 4 years. Applicants compete first within their own districts; if there are still scholarships remaining to be awarded, the remaining pool of applicants can be considered for ‘at-large’ scholarships. The intent is to award two scholarships per each of the 10 member districts, for a total of 20 scholarships, provided that the applicants meet the criteria of the selection process.

Awards are renewable up to three additional years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first, based on recipients maintaining satisfactory academic performance (2.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale) and full-time enrollment status at an accredited two-or four-year college or university. The renewal award amount will include a bonus of $250 each year the student maintains a 3.0 GPA (on a 4.0 scale) or better in the prior year of college. Students may transfer to another accredited institution without penalty of losing their awards. The student must be a dependent child of a current Cooperative member who resides in the Valley Telephone Cooperative service territory.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.
