MADISON, FL – A new school year at North Florida Community College is hurriedly approaching as students gear up for Fall Term. Alongside the arrival of a new term comes the opportunity to apply for Fall Scholarships until the scholarship application deadline on Aug. 1.
The NFCC Foundation awards scholarships each term to eligible students as supplemental funds to help in covering the cost of tuition, books, and fees. Individual and organizational as well as scholarships for high school seniors planning to enroll in Fall 2015 are available for application until the Aug. 1 deadline.
“Scholarships have made a huge, huge difference for me in my ability to pursue my education without really being bogged down and worrying about how I’m going to pay for it,” said NFCC scholarship recipient Heather Cook, “It’s been a blessing and I don’t think I would have had those opportunities anywhere other than NFCC”.
Heather is a first year RN student returning to school after 25 years and a mother of four. She received two scholarships through the NFCC Foundation this summer.
Restrictions and requirements vary with each scholarship, however basic eligibility for funds is a minimum of a 2.0 GPA. Applicants are also required to fill out a Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to be considered for a scholarship. Scholarships may be applied through the NFCC Foundation, Inc. located on the NFCC campus, Bldg. #36 (Development and External Affairs/NFCC Foundation Office). Scholarship applicants may stop by the Foundation Office, call (850) 973-9423 or email Foundation@nfcc.edu for more information and scholarship applications.
The North Florida Community College Foundation, Inc. is a separate not-for-profit, IRS approved 501(c)(3) corporation chartered to provide financially for the educational needs of NFCC programs and students from Hamilton, Jefferson, Lafayette, Madison, Suwannee and Taylor counties that cannot be met through state aid or student tuition income.
