CCCCD Offers First-Generation College Student Grants

March 5, 2004 - The Global EDGE Tech Prep Consortium at Collin County Community College District received a $30,000 grant from the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board to provide supplemental scholarships and assistance to first-generation college students. Eligible students may receive up to $500 to cover the costs of books, child care, personal expenses and transportation--costs that might otherwise prevent them from completing their college education. Grant money may not be used for tuition or fees. Funding remains available to eligible students through June 2004.

Eligible students must be in good standing, they must be enrolled full-time at CCCCD, and they must be first-generation college students. Students who fit this description and who are in need of such supplemental assistance may contact Roberta Jackson, assistant director of the CCCCD Global EDGE Tech Prep Consortium, at 972-548-6737.
