Three Rivers College Foundation Awards Additional $250,000 in Scholarships for Spring Term to help with Pandemic
The Three Rivers College Foundation is excited to announce that it will give out an additional $250,000 in scholarships and awards for the 2021 Spring Semester to assist current Three Rivers Community College students with the many difficulties they are facing due to the Pandemic. The monies will be used to remove financial barriers such as tuition, books, fees, online learning codes, and technology needs.
Current Three Rivers students can complete a brief online application at www.trcc.commnet.edu/student-support, which will be reviewed by a small committee of administrators, faculty, and staff. Funds will be awarded until the monies are exhausted.
According to the TRC Foundation Scholarship Chair, Nikki Gullickson, “The TRC Foundation recognizes the need to expand our current scholarship offerings to assist students in registering for and completing the Spring term. This funding will complement our current Summer and Fall program that awards over an additional $400,000 annually. Many of our most vulnerable students have been greatly impacted by the COVID-19 crisis, and now, more than ever, students need this financial assistance to achieve the education they have been working hard to attain.”
In March, when COVID-19 hit, the Three Rivers College Foundation Board also enacted emergency funding and purchased 60 laptops to assist students and faculty during the crisis. The laptops remain on-loan for students in need. Students can apply for a laptop at www.trcc.commnet.edu/computer-loan.
As the College works in new ways to provide educational opportunities for success, the TRC Foundation will remain flexible in providing additional support to students as they build a brighter future for themselves, their families and our shared community.
