Hagerstown Community College announces that scholarship applications for the 2006-2007 academic year are now available for new and returning students in degree programs of study. Students who currently receive a Foundation scholarship must reapply.
One application is available for both the Foundation and student financial aid scholarships. Students must be enrolled for at least six credit hours to apply for the HCC Foundation scholarships and most student financial aid scholarships.
Several scholarships exist within the Foundation, each with varying criteria. The categories include general, Booster Club, Faculty/Foundation Scholarship for Academic Excellence, HCC Alumni Association, radiography, nursing, and several others for students in a particular area of study.
The following scholarships are new this year: Giannaris Family, Mayme E. and Samuel C. Hays Memorial, Kathryn Stouffer Heath Registered Nurse, Julia S. and Ralph L. Jones Memorial, Thomas H. and Marlene H. Shank, and Sioda Family Fund.
Most scholarships are need-based. Numerous groups and individuals also have scholarships administered through the Student Financial Aid Office. Contributions made by private individuals, HCC employees, civic groups, businesses, foundations, and corporations make these scholarships possible. Contact your high school guidance counselor or pick up an application from the Student Financial Aid Office. Applications are also available online at www.hagerstowncc.edu/about/foundation .
Submittal deadline is April 21 at 4 p.m. Late applications will not be accepted. For more information, contact the HCC Foundation at 301-790-2800, extension 348, or the Financial Aid Office at extension 473.
