The Columbia Basin College Foundation is announcing $830,000 in scholarships at a reception for student recipients and donors Friday, October 11, 10 a.m. at the Pasco Red Lion.
The amount tops last year's record of $560,000. Of the 550 applications, a record 416 students are receiving scholarships for the 2013-14 school year compared to 331 students receiving scholarships last year. Scholarship donations have increased by leaps and bounds since the awarding of $120,000 in 2006.
"The increase resulted from a growth in annual scholarship donations from community members, healthy investment returns from our endowed scholarships, and significant returns from our special events," says Foundation CEO, Bob Rosselli.
Scholarships are being awarded in both academic transfer and workforce areas.
