Fall semester scholarship available for adult students
Adults in college or vocational training programs often have to jump over hurdles to finish. They may have to focus on their families and jobs in addition to school, or they may have to get used to studying again. These students may also be wondering how they will be able to pay for their education.
The Harrison County Community Foundation can help. Adults working toward completing their college degree or vocational training program can apply for scholarships for the fall 2019 semester.
The online Adult Scholarship Program Application for Fall 2019 Courses is available at hccfindiana.org on the Scholarships page in the Our Work tab. Applications must be submitted online by Sunday, June 30 at 4 p.m. to be considered.
Applicants must be Harrison County residents and be at least 25 years old as of the date of the application to be eligible. A maximum of $5,000 per recipient per calendar year may be awarded.
Applicants will need to demonstrate legal residency for the past 24 months. Documentation such as tax forms, housing receipts or utility bills can be used to verify residency.
In addition, applicants must be working toward a vocational certificate, associate’s degree or bachelor’s degree. Students who have previously obtained an associate’s or bachelor’s degree are not eligible to apply.
