The Niagara County Community College Foundation is offering scholarships for incoming and current students for the fall 2014 semester.
Applications are due March 7. High school seniors who live in Niagara County are eligible for a two-year, full-tuition distinguished student scholarship. Applicants must be graduating from high school in June with a Regents diploma, plan to attend NCCC full-time, have community service involvement, and remain in the county or plan to return upon graduation.
Additional scholarships are available for part-and full-time students, whether they are incoming or currently enrolled in classes. The funds for these scholarships are secured from a variety of sources, including donations from local businesses, individuals, foundations, memorial gifts, bequests and revenue from the annual Scholarship Gala. During the 2012-13 academic year, the NCCC Foundation awarded more than $128,000 to more than 230 students.
