Three Rivers College Foundation Awards $410,000 in Scholarships
The Three Rivers College Foundation held the twenty-seventh annual Scholarship Awards Ceremony on Tuesday, May 7 at Three Rivers Community College. Generous contributions led to over $410,000 in scholarships awarded to a record-breaking 188 students.
Proud families and friends packed the room during the hour-long ceremony as close to $7,000 was given away per minute! The total scholarships awarded came to just over $410,000, which includes $50,000 in summer scholarships. The majority of the scholarships support students through the fall and spring semesters, but many students who have exhausted their financial aid and cannot afford summer courses benefit from the summer scholarships which helps expedite their path to graduation. The summer scholarship program was incredibly successful last year.
