Nisswa Women's Club donates scholarship funds
The Nisswa Women's Club recently became the second full-ride scholarship benefactor for Central Lakes College students.
The organization donated $3,500 to the CLC Foundation to fund a full-ride scholarship for a non-traditional female student. The scholarship will fund tuition and books for one year of study. The student must be 25 or older, qualify for financial aid, and must be enrolled in either a technical or liberal arts program.
In addition to the full-ride scholarship, the club donated $2,000 this year to its permanent endowment fund with the CLC Foundation. That endowed fund now exceeds $16,000, said Diane Scearcy, foundation director.
This is the second full-ride scholarship the foundation has been able to award as a result of the generosity of area residents. The first was the Clarence and Fran Holden Heritage Scholarship, a two-year award presented to CLC freshman Jamie Risnes from Crosby.
