BRIDGES TO COLLEGE OFFERS SCHOLARSHIPS TO ANSONIA, FRANKLIN MONROE, AND GREENVILLE STUDENTS

Bridges to College is offering renewable scholarships of up to $500 each to eligible Ansonia, Franklin Monroe, and Greenville High School graduates.

“These need-based scholarships will help make college a reality for several students,” said Anne McKinney, executive director of Bridges to College. “The scholarships are up to $500 each and renewable for up to four years for full time students.”

Students who graduated within the last five years are eligible for the scholarships. This will be the eleventh year that Bridges to College has offered scholarships to area high school students.
“I encourage both incoming and existing college students to apply,” McKinney said. The deadline for the scholarships is May 15, 2016.

These scholarships are unique in that they are renewable for up to four years. This means that if students do well, Bridges to College will continue to support them. Scholarship recipients are required to complete 15 hours of community service for a non-profit organization in Darke County.

“This is a way that scholarship recipients can give back to the community that is helping them go to college,” McKinney said. She noted the scholarships are funded through the generous contributions of individuals and businesses.

Guidelines and applications are available in the guidance offices at each high school. Applications are also available online at the Bridges to College website, www.bridges2college.org.

People may also email Anne McKinney or call her at 423-2442 to request the guidelines and an application.

Bridges to College is a non-profit organization that helps more students achieve higher education through mentoring, programming and scholarships.
