It’s a record-setting year for scholarships at COCC. The Central Oregon Community College Foundation says it’s been able to offer close to $2M dollars in scholarships for the 2020-21 academic year. That assistance will help 380 students pursue their college education. The scholarships are awarded based on need and a demonstrated commitment to educational goals. A full scholarship to the college amounts to $4500. Despite the scholarship record the school has just set, school officials say they still have an unmet need in light of the fact that forty percent of students who were qualified and had applied for a foundation scholarship weren’t able to get one because of a lack of funding.
