Scholarship Money Available For Fall 2012: Apply by April 15
March 7th, 2012
Chatfield College has announced that private scholarship money is available for students registering for the fall 2012 term. In addition to federally funded programs, such as Pell Grants, this scholarship money is available due to the generosity of individual and corporate donors.
“We are delighted to be able to offer 17 endowed scholarships to our incoming and returning students,” said Steve Ranieri, Chatfield's Director of Development. “They are need based, and some are targeted to students with specific backgrounds or interests.” Ranieri adds that to apply, all students need to do is to pick up and return an application in the financial aid office during the admission and enrollment process. The endowed scholarship application can also be found on the college website: http://chatfield.solterra.ws/files/Endowed%20Scholarship%20Application2012%20sent%20to%20pam2.pdf
All applications need to be submitted by April 15 for full-year scholarship consideration.
One of the 17 endowed scholarships is the John and Judy Ruthven Scholarship. This scholarship is available to students with an interest in art. Before her death, Judy Ruthven was a dedicated member of Chatfield's Board of Trustees. Also available is the Sr. Agatha Fitzgerald Scholarship, established in honor of Agatha Fitzgerald, OSU, past dean and current faculty member at Chatfield College. This scholarship is awarded to students who exhibit qualities of strong faith, sensitivity, thoughtfulness, and a commitment to support others.
Two of the 17 available endowed scholarships are specific to the Findlay Market campus. The Rev. Damon Lynch, Jr. scholarship was established by New Jerusalem Baptist Church in honor of Rev. Damon Lynch Jr., a member of Chatfield's Board of Trustees, and is available to a student who wishes to attend Chatfield's Findlay Market campus. The Garry-Muething Families Scholarship was established by Paul Muething, Chair of Chatfield's Board of Trustees and Tim Garry, long-time supporter of Chatfield College. This scholarship is available to a minority female student who has completed at least one full academic year at Chatfield, on schedule to receive an Associate Degree, has demonstrated financial need and possesses the qualities identified in Chatfield's mission statement
