MSJC Foundation scholarships available

Mt. San Jacinto College students are encouraged to apply now for MSJC Foundation scholarships, since the application deadline is Sept. 14, 2007.

The following scholarships for the 2007-08 are in the offing:

The Community Foundation of Riverside & San Bernardino Counties Scholarships are available for students who maintain a minimum of six units and a 3.0 GPA for Associate degrees (2.75 GPA for certificate programs).

The Lena T. Pond Scholarship program was developed to assist serious students studying or training for a certificate or associate degree in nursing or pursuing a Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing or Allied Health.

The applications can be found at the Financial Aid office on the Menifee or San Jacinto campuses or by visiting the scholarship application web page.

The MSJC Foundation Scholarship committee will meet in late September to choose the recipients. The committee consists of board members who review each application and award scholarships based on a variety of criteria.  Mt. San Jacinto College Foundation scholarship funds are generated from the interest earned by permanently endowed scholarships and other special donations to the Foundation.
