The Coastal Bend College Foundation helps CBC students achieve their dreams of furthering their education and gaining purposeful, well-paying jobs. As the demand for qualified, well-trained employees grows, CBC continues to offer the best educational program in the area at an affordable cost. Through its scholarship programs, the CBC Foundation enables area students to afford a quality education, based on CBC’s courses and programs that both provide quality education and aid area employers to find prepared, qualified employees. With gifts from generous donors, in June the CBC Foundation awarded scholarships for the Fall 2018 semester to 78 students from the four campuses. The total amount awarded was $55,000. The previous semester, the Foundation awarded 126 scholarships for a total amount of $68,500.
The CBC Foundation gives out scholarships to students every year based on the money that has been donated towards them for scholarships. In the fall and spring, the scholarship opens up and students are encouraged to apply for the scholarships in order to help offset the cost of college. If you are interested in donating toward the CBC scholarship fund, please visit the foundation website. Students recognize and appreciate the role that donors play in their lives through these scholarships. One recipient, a single mother of two boys, wrote the Foundation to express her gratitude and ambition.
