More than $60,000 in scholarships is available for the upcoming academic year at South Louisiana Community College. New and continuing students can begin applying for SLCC scholarships beginning March 15.
Through the generosity of donors in Acadiana, dozens of students will have a portion or nearly all of their education for the 2014-2015 academic year paid.
Some of the area donors establishing spring scholarships are C.L. Jack Stelly & Associates, Home Furniture, KATC TV-3, iConvergence, Elder Outreach, Popeyes, Johnston Street Java, and more. This year, several families across Acadiana have also established memorial scholarships to establish long-term legacies in the names of loved ones.
Several of the 24 scholarships available this academic year are open to all students, while others are specific to a student's campus location and/or major.
Deadline to apply for the spring scholarships is Thursday, May 1. The Fall 2014 semester begins
Monday, August 18.
SLCC is a comprehensive community college that operates campuses in Abbeville, Crowley, Franklin, Lafayette, New Iberia, Opelousas, St. Martinville, and Ville Platte.
