ACC nursing students receive scholarships from anonymous donor

‘Tis the season of giving. Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor to the Alpena Community College Foundation, five ACC nursing students were surprised to receive a $500 scholarship for their 2017-18 spring semester.

ACC Foundation Executive Director Penny Boldrey said, “The foundation has a robust scholarship program, thanks to the immense generosity of its supporters. However, it’s wonderful when additional unplanned gifts are received to support our students.”

During the current academic year, the ACC Foundation has awarded approximately $180,000 in scholarships support to 325 students through scholarship funds established by individuals, businesses, service clubs, corporations and foundations.

Scholarship applications will be available for new and returning students planning to attend ACC during the 2018-19 academic year on Jan. 9, 2018. To be considered for a scholarship, applications are due on March 19, 2018.
