NCMCF Awarded over $76,000 in scholarships

North Central Michigan
Community Foundation Awards Over $76,000 in Scholarships

 

“Students from NCMCF’s service area have received $76,025
in scholarships in 2020,” said Community Foundation Program Director Laurie
Nugent. “Most of these awards are for the 2020-2021 academic year, and include
88 individual awards, including those from the West Branch-Rose City
Educational Support Partnership and Oscoda County College Fund.”

 

“The Scholarship Review Committees have their work cut out
for them every year, but this year was especially unique as we adapted to doing
reviews a bit differently than past years,” said Nugent. “These students have
so many demands placed on them in a very competitive atmosphere, and for many,
the way their first semester of college looks will be much different than
planned. The benefit of receiving a scholarship – no matter the size – can have
a real impact on their future and helping them with their education.”

 

The Foundation’s Executive
Director Patrick Heraghty says that behind each fund entrusted to the Community
Foundation, including scholarship funds, is a legacy for the donor and a gift
of promise to the next generation.

“It is only because people who care about our communities
and those who live here chose to give back, that the Foundation was able to
award these scholarships this year,” said Heraghty. “What an incredible gift it
is for these students to be cared for in this way by generous people they may
never even meet.”

 

One of the unique aspects of the NCMCF scholarship program
is that many of its scholarships are not just determined by academic achievement.
Each scholarship reflects the intentions of the donor, and in some cases, that
means the emphasis is placed on student interests such as farming, a trade such
as welding or plumbing, the arts, or healthcare. All area students planning to
attend college are encouraged to apply for scholarships, regardless of whether
they plan to attend a trade certification program, community college or a
four-year university.

January.

The North Central Michigan
Community Foundation is a nonprofit charitable organization committed to
providing people who care about the future of our area with unique and
effective ways of supporting their community now, and for generations to come.
