2014 Foster Furcolo Scholarship Essay
In order for the Scholarship Selection Committee to give full consideration to your scholarship application, you are required to submit a minimum one-page typed statement describing how you exemplify the philosophy of the community college based on the following statement:
“The Community College System was designed to encourage educational opportunities for populations typically under served by traditional colleges and universities. Access to higher education is made easier by an "open door" admissions policy, affordable tuition rates and attractive two-year programs. The college aggressively seeks the non-traditional student as well as the high school senior. Programs offered, which are of high quality, provide a choice of career programs or the more traditional liberal arts program. The community college prepares students for a new career or for transfer to a four-year college or university. Most importantly, the community college provides access to education.”
