7/17/17

Scott Community College outdoor signScott Community College Foundation is excited to share that they received notification today from The American Legion of Iowa Foundation that the college foundation will receive $2,000 again this year in support of veteran student scholarships. This funding can be used to support two students at $1,000 each or four students at $500 each. 

The Scott Community College Foundation and The American Legion of Iowa Foundation have a long standing relationship with more than $13,000 awarded to Scott Community College veteran students since 2012. These funds have greatly helped deserving veteran students with their tuition and book costs. 

“We have greatly enjoyed working with The American Legion of Iowa Foundation to provide our veterans with additional financial support for their education,” said Lysa Hegland the Scott Community College Foundation Director. “Together we are showing our veterans we are grateful for their service and want them to continue to be successful.” 

The Scott Community College Foundation also offers a Veteran’s Assistance Fund for veteran students who need to start classes before their entitlements begin to ensure they have their books and supplies needed on the first day of class.

Veteran students interested in applying for The American Legion of Iowa Foundation scholarship can go on-line starting August 1 to apply at www.eicc.edu/scholarships. If you are interested in learning more about the Veteran’s Assistance Fund or you may be interested in providing support to help veteran students achieve their educational goals, please contact Lysa Hegland at 563-441-4063.
