A record 123 new scholarships were awarded to students to attend Nicolet College second semester according to the executive director of the Nicolet College Foundation.
Heather Schallock says generous donor support made the additional scholarships possible...
"....there are already more than 250 scholarships already awarded for this academic year and then with more than 100 additional scholarships, it's probably around 300 students because some students receive more than one scholarship...."
Scholarship amounts ranged from $200 to $1,500 to help students cover the cost of tuition and books for the upcoming semester. In all, the Nicolet College Foundation awarded $55,570 in student scholarships for next semester. The Nicolet College Foundation has already awarded more than $193,000 for this school year.
Schallock says there are a number of different ways the money is raised...
"probably the most well-known campaign is the 'Day For Nicolet'. That is an annual fundraising campaign that we do in the fall and winter of the year. We're in that period right now. It's about relationships with our donors We have the most incredibly loyal donors who believe in Nicolet College, our mission and our students...."
This is the fourth year the Foundation awarded scholarships specifically for second semester.
