QVCC’S COMMITMENT TO A DEBT-FREE EDUCATION FOR EASTERN CONNECTICUT
$140,000 in Foundation Scholarships, Full Scholarship Award and Recent Open House Scholarship Winners
DANIELSON, CT —The Quinebaug Valley Community College Foundation is offering $140,000 in scholarships for the 2019-2020 academic year. With the rising cost of higher education, QVCC is proud that the last eight graduating classes left QVCC with NO Federal Student Loans. State grants and scholarships from The Foundation and excellent financial aid advising provide a debt-free college education for QVCC students.
The majority of scholarships are available to new (incoming) QVCC students, as well as returning students and most require a minimum GPA of 3.0., but several scholarships are for QVCC students graduating in May. This spring will be the first time The Foundation awards the Steven & Marjolaine ’87, ’88 Townsend Putnam High School Scholar’s Scholarships. This includes a full-scholarship to a resident of Putnam who is graduating from Putnam High School in 2019, with a minimum 3.0 GPA.
The College continues to help our residents become students. Kaitlin, senior at Killingly High School, was awarded a $1,000 scholarship for the 2019-2020 academic year for applying to the College and attending the fall open house. The spring open house is on Wednesday, March 6, at 6 p.m. at the Danielson campus. One student who applies on or before March 6 and attends Open House will be awarded a $1,000 for the 2019-2020 academic year.
Aaron, who was able to start this spring in the Advanced Manufacturing Certificate Program, won a $500 scholarship for attending the January Advanced Manufacturing Technology Center (AMTC) Information Session. The AMTC endowment has continued to grow due to the generosity of our business partners in Northeast Connecticut and currently stands at more than $500,000. Current students have earned monetary awards for achieving scholastic success, the Dean’s List and for remaining in the program for a second semester. The fund has helped more than 50 students to successful completion. The next AMTC Information session will be held on March 28, 2019 at 5 p.m.
Scholarship applications and additional documents are due to the College by Friday, March 8, 2019
