SUBMITTED BY PETE CHAMBERS –
The Polk County Single Parent Scholarship Fund plans to award $14,500 in scholarships for the fall 2015 semester.
Though almost all recipients start their college careers at Rich Mountain Community College, Single Parent Scholarships can be used at any not-for-profit post secondary institution.
Scholarships for full-time students are $1,000 a semester. Proportional scholarships are available for part-time students. Single parents with custody of their minor children and living in Polk County are eligible.
For an application form or for answers to questions, contact Pete Chambers, Scholarship Fund Chair, at 479-243-0781 or stop by RMCC’s Financial Aid office.
Though there is no deadline, applications received before August 15 will be given preference.
