Don’t be like me…Shackled

Scholarship Deadlines: March 16 at GRCC and April 1 at Grand Rapids Community Foundation!

There have been a lot of articles over the past years about the rising cost of higher education.  Even at a community college, the costs are heavy.  There are 2 places that I know about where you can apply for scholarships and the deadlines are fast approaching.

GRCC Foundation Scholarships – one application for over 200 scholarships. Need and merit based, including transfer scholarships. Get more information at

Grand Rapids Community Foundation scholarships  – Over 70 scholarships for residents of Kent County – Get more information at

The GRCC Foundation offers over 200 scholarships for students attending in the 2015-2016 school year.  Only one application is needed to be considered for these awards.  A paper application is available in the financial aid office (Enrollment Center-Main Building) or you may print the PDF. Applications and a transcript must be returned to the financial aid office. (see link above)

Grand Rapids Community Foundation awards hundreds of scholarships annually primarily to Kent County students bound for or in college, or those pursuing a technical career.

Don’t be like me and be shackled to student loan debt. I’m happy for my education. I needed my education. I just didn’t do it right. DON’T BE LIKE ME! Apply for scholarships today!
