A college education is essential to the betterment of an individuals future. Students may find themselves in a difficult financial situation where they cannot afford to complete their degree. With an increase in scholarships available to the student body, together we can help more students obtain a college education and be a step closer to a better future. Scholarships are important not only to keep current students but, also to help recruit new students and continue the growth of college education among our society.
