Tillamook Bay Community College Foundation opens scholarships for 2017-2018

Tillamook Bay Community College Foundation is pleased to announce the opening of their
2017-2018 scholarships for current and prospective TBCC students. There is nearly $65,000 in scholarship support to award. Applications can be found at under the paying for college tab. Students have until May 15 to submit applications.

“Scholarships are a great way to pay for your education,” said Heidi Luquette, Director of Development and College Advancement at TBCC. “We have a variety of scholarships available and our hope is to assist as many people as possible to go back and get their education.”

The TBCC Foundation is offering a few new scholarships this year, thanks to a variety of new donations. The Economic Development Council of Tillamook County is funding a $1,000 scholarship to encourage an entrepreneur to get their education and a $1,000 Alicia and Robert Reed Scholarship is being offered to a second-year TBCC student with a preference toward a student studying in the Agriculture and Natural Resources Degree program. Additionally, for this spring term, there is a $350 John A. Lewis Memorial Scholarship available.

“It’s exciting to see these new scholarships popping up as more and more people in our community see the value of supporting students and education,” Luquette said. “Big or small, a scholarship make’s a difference to a student.”

Scholarships are awarded in May with funds dispersed in the fall. They help to cover tuition and other expenses over three terms. Unlike federal and private loans, scholarships do not have to be paid back. There is no limit to how many scholarships one student may apply for.
