Scholarship Money is Available to New River Students

The NRCC Educational Foundation provides over 130 scholarships of $1000 each to eligible students each year. These endowed scholarships are awarded to students chosen by a committee of faculty and staff from the pool of applications submitted by current students as well as those planning to enroll for the Fall 2009 semester. The criteria for selection includes residency requirements, financial need and current or potential scholastic achievement. Those who receive a NRCC Educational Foundation scholarship may be considered for a second grant if all of the requirements are met. Recipients of the scholarship must maintain a class load of 9 or more credit hours, so part-time students are eligible to apply. The applications are available now online at the financial aid website or a paper copy can be picked up at the Financial Aid Office in Martin Hall. The deadline for submission is February 16, 2009.

About Pam Linkous

Editor of my high school newspaper back when papers were carved into stone tablets and delivered by oxen, I now spend my days unraveling the mysteries of Blackboard (like, you mean my instructor has my paper NOW...I just accidently pressed enter....oh noooooo) and trying to understand how textbooks today cost more than tuition did when I went to college the first time. Despite needing several more hours per day to get everything done (who do I e-mail, Facebook, blog about that?), I still love to write and am willing to take on assignments that do not require staying up past my bedtime.
