Greenville residents encouraged to apply now for Fall 2014 scholarship
The Greenville Country Christmas Committee recently donated $1000 to the North Florida Community College Foundation. The contribution benefits NFCC’s Greenville Community Scholarship and supports the committee’s goal to offer deserving Greenville residents with opportunities to further their education.
“For years the Greenville Country Christmas Committee has made donations to the North Florida Community College scholarship fund,” said Stuart MacIver, outgoing president of the Greenville Country Christmas Committee. “We do that, as a committee, because we believe that the furtherance of education is very important; also we want to keep it [the scholarship] local. We are very proud to be in partnership with this institution [NFCC]”
NFCC awards one $500 scholarship to a Greenville resident through the scholarship each fall. Scholarship recipients must reside at a Greenville address, have and maintain a 3.0 GPA, attend NFCC and not be fully supported by other financial aid. The scholarship is awarded annually to a deserving, hard working student who is involved in his/her community or school. Greenville Country Christmas is held annually on the 2nd Saturday in December to help raise funds to support the scholarship.
Applications are currently being accepted for the Greenville Community Scholarship as well as other scholarships offered through the NFCC Foundation. NFCC’s scholarship application deadline for Fall Term 2014 is Monday, Aug. 4. Applicants are encouraged to apply early.
