In today’s economy, more students than ever rely on grants and scholarships for their education, this makes your support increasingly important. This past academic year, we awarded over $810,000 in scholarships to 906 students …and your generosity helped make this happen. Scholarship support for students like Brandi continues to be our funding priority, and we’re asking again for you to support GRCC students and their success.
“Your gift will provide important support for GRCC students – their success will have a positive effect on our community by making them job-ready and world-ready. By supporting student scholarships, you are helping us meet our greatest unmet need, and will inspire student success! “There are several scholarships available for students at many junctures in life… women returning to school, students pursuing nursing or other fields, minorities, academically gifted, and those with financial need. The variety of scholarships available enable everyone a chance to go back to school. I am hopeful that the donors who make the GRCC Foundation scholarships possible realize the huge impact they have on the lives of individual students, and subsequently on our community at large. I am truly grateful for their generous gifts.”
GRCC Scholarship Recipient
Our goal for this year’s annual fund is $650,000. GRCC students need your support more than ever – and, their education will provide a huge return on your investment.
