Terra scholarship program evolves for 2007-2008

Fremont: The recently revamped scholarship program at Terra Community College truly has something for every type of student – from a high school senior looking to start college to a 40-something who started years ago but never finished.

Never before has financial aid been more important. In Measuring Up 2006, a report issued recently by the National Center for Public Policy and Higher Education, Ohio received an F in college affordability.

“First of all, Terra is one of the most affordable options a student has,” said Dale Stearns, Dean of Student Development and Registrar. “Increasing the availability of scholarships makes it even more affordable.”

The new scholarship program for 2007-2008 has several tiers.

The first tier includes merit-based scholarships for 2007 high school graduates:

  • “Great Start” Merit Scholarships – For news student and 2007 high school graduates who achieved at least a 3.0 grade point average their junior and senior years and plan to attend Terra full time. There will be 20 awards of $1,500 each.
  • Vanguard-Sentinel Career Centers Awards – An outstanding senior in each career program at the career centers will receive a $500 scholarship.
  • Tech Prep Awards – An outstanding senior in each Tech Prep program in the local consortium will receive a $500 scholarship.

The second group of scholarships includes awards for the non-traditional student and they are need-based.

  • “Jump Start” Need Scholarships – New students who graduate from the Gateway program or new students who have been away from school for at least three years may apply. Full-time or part-time enrollment plans will be considered. Unmet financial need is the primary selection factor. There will be 20 awards of $1,000 each.
  • “Second Chance” Need Scholarships – Returning students who have been away from Terra for at least three years after an unsuccessful enrollment experience and aren’t academically eligible for federal student aid may apply. Full- or part-time students will be considered. There will be 10 awards of $500 each, given on a first-come, first-served basis.

There are also many other Terra College Foundation scholarships that are available as in years past. They range from memorial scholarships to those offered by civic or professional organizations.
