If your Clinton student was planning to apply for scholarship opportunities through the Clinton Community Education Foundation, then hopefully they got their applications turned in.
Monday was the deadline to apply for the annual scholarships distributed through the local non-profit organization. Barbara Gullone, President of CCEF, says they have several scholarships they'll be giving out this spring. She explains those scholarships are funded through community gifts.
According to Gullone, each of the scholarships provide a nice financial boost to local Clinton students continuing their education. She says they range from a one time award to some that provide financial assistance each of the four years the recipient attends college.
Gullone explains the winners of the scholarships will go through an interview process. She says the goal is to award the monies to well-rounded Clinton students.
The Clinton Community Education Foundation Scholarship Committee will begin the process of narrowing down the applications in the coming weeks. The winners of the awards will be recognized at the annual Gold Star Banquet at Clinton High School in May.
