2017 - 2018 Scholarships


Umpqua Valley Christian School exists to partner with parents to educate and disciple students from a biblical worldview. Many Christian parents are strongly impressed with the need for a Christ-centered education and discipleship for their children, but do not always have the funds for attending a private Christian school. This year at UVC we have devoted 100% of the proceeds from our annual auction to providing scholarships. It is our desire to provide these scholarships for families that show a commitment to Christian education and are able to demonstrate a financial need in order to do so. If you have any questions that are not addressed in the Frequently Asked Questions below, please feel free to email the office or call; 541-679-4964

Scholarship FAQ’s

What is the deadline for filling out the FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment?
For families who have received scholarships from the UVC Scholarship Program in previous years, you must have your application completed before April 30th, 2017. We have designated a percentage of the funds for those seeking financial help again. On May 1st we will remove that designation for returning applicants, and make all scholarship dollars available throughout the year dependent upon applicant need. 

How much does the assessment cost?
The FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment costs $30, paid directly to FACTS Tuition Management Company.

What are you going to do with my financial information?
The financial information provided is run through the proprietary calculation process of FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment to produce a Suggested Award Amount. FACTS serves over 3000 private schools with tuition management and grant assessment. The administrator overseeing scholarships at UVC can see all of the financial data entered in the system; however, the UVC Scholarship Committee is allowed to see only the Suggested Award Amount for their decision making.

Why do I need to have an interview?
We distribute our scholarships based on two factors. One is whether or not there is a financial need. The other is whether or not your family is committed to Christian education. Please review the following documents on the website to verify whether you agree with the philosophy of Christian education at UVC.

Can I do the interview over the phone?
The preference is to sit in person to have a conversation about your families reasons for seeking a scholarship at UVC and whether you agree with our philosophy of education, however, there may be exceptions to completing an in person interview. Please contact our office at 541-479-4964 if you are in need of an exception to an in person interview.

Can I fill out the FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment for a scholarship if I am not officially enrolled at Umpqua Valley Christian School?
You may fill out the FACT Grant & Aid Assessment whether you are already enrolled or not. However, UVC is not responsible for the $30 application fee whether you are accepted for enrollment or not.

How long will I receive a scholarship?
The scholarship award term is for the 2017-2018 School Year.

Can I apply for a scholarship again?
You can re-apply each year in order to receive scholarship funds for the following school year.

To whom are the scholarship dollars available?
This year we have made a portion of our scholarships available to families that already attend UVC as well as those who are new families to UVC. Scholarship dollars are available to all Kindergarten through 12th Grade students.

How much can I expect as a scholarship award?
The maximum award for scholarships at UVC is a 50% discount of tuition unless otherwise approved by the board. The actual disbursement of scholarship dollars will vary by individual applicant need as suggested by the FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment.
