Scholarships Available at Chatfield College
July 11th, 2011
Chatfield College has announced that private scholarship money is now available for students registering for the fall term, which begins August 22. 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 20 endowed scholarships to our incoming and returning students,” said Zana Smith, Chatfield's Director of Student Financial Services. “Some are need based, and others are targeted to students with specific backgrounds or interests.” Smith adds that to apply, all students need to do is to pick up and return an application in the financial aid office at either campus during the admission and enrollment process. The endowed scholarship application can also be found on the college website: www.chatfield.edu. All applications need to be submitted by July 22 for full-year scholarship consideration.
Three of the 20 available endowed scholarships include the John and Judy Ruthven Scholarship, The Rev. Damon Lynch, Jr. Scholarship and the Garry and Muething Families Scholarship.
The John and Judy Ruthven scholarship is available to students at either campus with an interest in art, and is not need-based. Judy Ruthven was a dedicated member of Chatfield's Board of Trustees. “We recently lost our dear Judy,” said Chatfield College president John Tafaro. “The Brown County community has responded by honoring her with an amazing number of generous gifts to increase the endowment of this scholarship fund, named after her and her devoted husband John. I am pleased we have even more funding available this year to honor Judy's memory by awarding a scholarship in her name to a student interested in art.”
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 and 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's Degree, has demonstrated financial need and possesses the qualities identified in Chatfield's mission statement.
A list of all available endowed scholarships can be found on the college website.
