Donations to Scholarship Fund

We receive applications from an exceptional cohort of deserving students, and we want to continue to provide six (6) $1,000 scholarships annually.  These scholarships allow students the freedom to buy books, cover housing and transportation costs as well as help make their transfer from the community college to the 4-year college as seamless as possible.
