The Spoon River College Foundation has awarded in excess of 115 scholarships to area students for the 2012-13 academic year at Spoon River College. The total amount of awards, based on interest earned from Named Endowed Scholarships, special scholarship grants, and flow-through scholarships, is over $60,000.
“The Foundation believes that education is the key to a successful future,” said Foundation Chairman Jerry Cremer. “Being able to provide scholarships so that people can realize their dreams of higher education is extremely gratifying. Scholarships represent a principal funding focus of the SRC Foundation. Each year since 2007, the Foundation has been fortunate to add new named endowed scholarships and we are thankful to our many donors who make this possible.”
Scholarship awards range from $250 to $1,000 and eligible applicants are matched to specific scholarships based on need, GPA, academic interest or other factors designated by the donors. The awards may be used for tuition and fees, books, or other educational needs.
