Morgan County, IN – More than 90 high school seniors throughout Morgan County were recently awarded scholarships from the Community Foundation of Morgan County (CFMC). These graduates represented Martinsville, Mooresville, Monrovia, and Eminence High Schools.
“These scholarships are inclusive and diverse,” said CFMC President, Brittani Bentley. “Over half of our scholarships offered are specifically for students pursuing a vocational degree or have less than straight A’s and this means all students have an opportunity to qualify for these awards”.
Since 2005 CFMC has been a source of numerous scholarship funds for two- or four-year college or vocational school programs. “Many students and families believe scholarships are geared for 3.5+ GPA students, exceptional athletes, or seniors intending to pursue a four-year university. The truth is that scholarships exist for students with any GPA or intended vocation. CFMC is proud to steward scholarships both for outstanding educational and athletic vigor, and half of CFMC’s scholarships are also intended for students who are graduating with less than a perfect GPA, are pursuing a vocational degree, or found a future through a trade college/ 2-year program. We recognize it takes all kinds of continuing education for our graduating students to become successful, and we are honored to be just a small part in meeting their financial needs.” said Jessica Schwarz, CFMC Community Development Officer and Scholarship Coordinator.
