STAY HOME, STAY SAFE, STAY LOCAL
The second initiative is called STAY HOME, STAY SAFE, STAY LOCAL. Through a generous donation, we are now offering 25 students a FREE SEMESTER at college! If you are concerned or your child is hesitant to go away to school in this environment, or is wondering why he or she should pay high tuition fees to take online classes from home, ESCC offers a fantastic alternative — for the first 25 students who apply, a once in a lifetime opportunity for FREE tuition!
Our donor is very concerned about keeping our youth on the Eastern Shore healthy and at the same time helping them get a high quality educational experience that will lead to good jobs and careers.
The guidelines for eligibility for this scholarship are simple. Students who pursue this program must commit to successfully complete two semesters at ESCC. The scholarship is for in-state students who are high school graduates or have earned a GED. The student must commit to enrolling at ESCC for both Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 semesters and must be enrolled in at least six credit hours both semesters. Completing the FAFSA is optional but recommended for the second semester. Please know that this scholarship is on a first come first serve basis.
Our donor will pay eligible students’ tuition for the Fall 2020 semester and if a student successfully completes both Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 they will be under no obligation to pay back any of the fall tuition dollars.
Classes start on August 24, 2020, so don’t wait, apply for the Stay Home, Stay Safe, Stay Local scholarship today.
