Scholarship opportunities for Lake County students

The Lake County campus is pleased to announce two upcoming scholarship opportunities. The Franks S. Westling Memorial Scholarship is named for a previous dean of Columbia College’s Division of Adult Higher Education. Dean Westling was a champion of the adult student and these scholarships are given in his memory. These $500 scholarships will be awarded to students at each nationwide campus who not only are academically strong, but provide evidence of leadership and service to community, college and/or country. Applications are due March 13, 2009, and scholarships will be awarded in August 2009. For more information and eligibility criteria, please contact your academic advisor.

An external scholarship is being offered through Resources for the Education of Adults in the Chicago Area (REACh). The Fall 2009 REACh Your Goals scholarship is designed to assist the growing number of adult learners who are returning to college. Up to four $1,500 scholarships will be awarded. The application deadline is April 15, 2009, and scholarships will be awarded in Fall 2009. Click here for more information and eligibility criteria.
