NMJC Foundation Scholarships Available
6/16/2008 3:14:44 p.m. - Hobbs, NM. Jennifer Jordon, Executive Director of the NMJC Foundation, has announced that applications are being accepted through July 1 for Foundation scholarships to attend New Mexico Junior College in the fall.
Anyone, including out-of-state residents, may apply for the scholarships, which range from $100 to $1000. According to Jordon, the Foundation awarded over $165,000 in scholarships last year. "Thanks to NMJC's low tuition, these scholarships can go a long ways toward offsetting the expense of college and can be used for tuition, fees, books, and even the cost of commuting." In addition to Foundation scholarships, Jordon noted that students may also qualify for other financial aid awards, such as institutional scholarships, grants, and loans.
To apply for a Foundation scholarship, applicants must provide official transcripts; two letters of recommendation, one of which is from a school official; and a written essay. Applications may be picked up at the NMJC Foundation on the NMJC campus at 5317 Lovington Highway, or downloaded online at http://www.nmjc.edu/admissions/financialaid/pdf/0809scholarships.pdf.
