The Dodge City Community College (DC3) Foundation recently announced scholarship recipients for the 2020-21 school year.
“The Foundation supports more than 50 scholarships for full-time students,” DC3 Foundation Director, Christina Haselhorst said. “Scholarship awards range from $250 to $1,000, and students are eligible to apply for these scholarships each year through DC3 Financial Aid.”
With many students experiencing added challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic, being selected as a recipient is “welcomed news,” she said.
“The nationwide shutdown did affect our investments to the point of concern regarding scholarship awards for this upcoming year,” she said. “However, they rebounded a bit and some extra donations came in, allowing the Foundation to award some of the scholarships, which was a relief.”
While businesses across the nation are having to make tough budgetary adjustments, there are still businesses, organizations, and individuals whose faithfulness extends beyond the strain of COVID-19, she said.
“I am grateful for the committed donors across the nation who submit a small donation each year to the scholarships entrusted to the DC3 Foundation,” she said. “At DC3, because the tuition is so cost effective, we are able to help many more students than a larger, more expensive institution.”
The 2020-21 recipients are as follows:
The above list reflects only the Foundation’s scholarships, which means it does not include the full number of scholarships available to DC3 students, Haselhorst said. Students interested in applying for scholarships should visit dc3.edu to view institutional aid options under the “Admissions” tab.
“Congratulations to all of our scholarship recipients,” she said. “The DC3 Foundation appreciates all of our donor contributions that make awarding these scholarships possible. And as alumni stories and pictures are pouring in for our 85th anniversary this year, awarding these scholarships is just icing on the cake after so many months of uncertainty.”
