The deadline is approaching for Grand Rapids Community College students to apply for GRCC Foundation scholarships, financial support that can put higher education within reach and change lives.
The deadline for applying for scholarships is March 15, and a common application is available on the GRCC website at grcc.edu/scholarships. The foundation has more than 400 scholarship opportunities and last year distributed more than $1.1 million.
“The pandemic has exacerbated the financial challenges faced by so many of our students,” said Dr. Kathryn K. Mullins, vice president for College Advancement and executive director of the GRCC Foundation. “A college education is the pathway to a better life, and scholarships, in many cases, make attaining a degree or certificate possible. Completing the application is the first step.”
The information provided in the common application is used to match students with scholarships for which they might be eligible.
