Deadline Near for 2009 Scholarship Applications

January 28, 2009

Time is of the essence for students who wish to apply for 2009 scholarships at Atlantic Cape Community College. Applications are due Friday, Feb. 13.

ACCC awarded more than $202,950 in scholarships to qualified students in 2008. Students need to complete an application form, write a short essay describing what part a scholarship will play in achieving their personal and professional goals, and submit at least two letters of recommendation. A minimum GPA of 2.5 is required. Late entries will not be considered.

Among some of the scholarships is an Academy of Culinary Arts award established in memory of Cape May County resident Nathan Allen, 2003 ACA graduate. Allen died in a car accident in February 2006 at age 22. Also offered is the Rachelle Stover Memorial Scholarship, with funding provided by the Atlantic City Hotel and Lodging Association Scholarship Foundation.

Recipients are expected to attend the annual scholarship award ceremony, 7 p.m., Monday, May 18, in the Walter Edge Theater at ACCC's Mays Landing Campus.

Applications are available at the financial aid offices on ACCC's campuses in Mays Landing, Atlantic City and Cape May County, and online.
