The Paul B. Sharar Foundation for Clinton Community College provides monetary and advisory support for students, faculty and college programs. Through the leadership of the Foundation Board of Directors, the mission and needs of the college are made visible to the community and to business and industry.

Named after the first Dean of Clinton Community College, the Paul B. Sharar Foundation supports the students, programs, faculty and staff at the college. The 28-member Board of Directors is responsible for encouraging, receiving and administering all contributions.

Each year the Sharar Foundation awards more than 120 scholarships to deserving Clinton Community College students. These scholarships are awarded to recent high school graduates as well as nontraditional students returning to college to continue their education. All students are encouraged to apply for scholarships. Application deadlines are April 1 and November 1.

Supporting college programs through equipment purchases and funding for staff development are also priorities of the Sharar Foundation. A Sharar Foundation Educational Grant program funds faculty and staff continuing education. In addition, the Sharar Foundation coordinates Business/Industry class tours within the community.

The Paul B. Sharar Foundation is located on the Clinton Community College Main Campus. For more information, contact Ann Eisenman, Executive Director, 563-244-7040.
