Donate To V-500 Today!

The V-500 scholarship program was founded in 1972 by a small group of visionary university and community leaders. Their intention was to develop a program that would provide financial assistance to students to attend Valley City State University. In the early years the program awarded a total of $5,000 in scholarship awards at the $75 level.

From those humble beginnings, V-500 has grown to become a tremendous asset to Valley City State University. Today's V-500 scholarships range from $1,000 - $5,000. Approximately 200 students benefit from the program annually.

There are now over 1,250 V-500 members, many with multiple memberships and a growing number with upper level memberships of V-5,000, V-10,000 and V-25,000. Nearly 40% of all VCSU scholarships are funded by V-500.

Our V-500 Board of Directors is working hard to grow this program even further. We hope you will join us in this effort. To join V-500 print out the following brochure and send in the application or make a donation online.
