Jackson Community College students to get twice as much sholarship money in upcoming academic year

Jackson Citizen Patriot
Jackson Community College students will get nearly twice as much scholarship money from the college's foundation during the upcoming academic year.

Scholarships totaling $392,000 are available, said Jason Valente, executive director of the JCC Foundation, compared to the $200,000 that typically are approved.

Most of the new dollars won't be available until the spring term, he said.

Word of the additional scholarship money is welcome news for JCC students who are dealing with the end of the Michigan Promise Scholarship and a reduction in the maximum annual Jackson Legacy Scholarship from $3,000 to $600.

Those reductions and other economic problems resulted in "a perfect storm of bad news" for students, which Valente said JCC officials decided needed to be addressed.

Donors stepped up to provide more scholarship money, he said, and the college streamlined some operational costs so it could steer more money into the scholarship funds.
