CLARK COLLEGE 75TH ANNIVERSARY SCHOLARSHIPS
Two new scholarships will be offered to Clark College students
as part of the college’s 75th anniversary celebration
VANCOUVER, Wash. – In celebration of Clark College’s 75th anniversary, two new scholarships are being offered for the 2009-2010 academic year. One scholarship will be awarded to an incoming Clark College student, and one scholarship will be awarded to a continuing Clark College student.
Each recipient will receive a $3,000 scholarship toward tuition for one year and $750 in books and supplies at the Clark College Bookstore. Scholarship recipients must take a minimum of ten credits per quarter. Scholarship and supplemental funds will be paid quarterly.
The scholarships are made possible through donations provided by Arnerich, Massena & Associates, Inc. in support of the college’s diamond anniversary.
The deadline for applications is Friday, April 10, 2009. Scholarship recipients will be announced in mid-May.
Clark College President Robert K. Knight said, “Throughout our anniversary year, we have been dedicated to preserving the past, honoring the present and embracing the future. I can’t think of a better way to embrace our future than by a scholarship which can literally change someone’s life, enabling them to make a positive difference in our region for years to come.”
