CCC scholarship seminar Feb. 23, 2016

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- Scholarship season has begun, and Coconino Community College would like to help students secure scholarship funding for the 2016-17 academic year.
Representatives from the CCC Financial Aid Department and the Arizona Community Foundation will guide students through the process of applying for college scholarships at CCC and from external donors. The seminar will be 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 23, at the CCC Lone Tree Campus Board Room, 2800 S. Lone Tree Road, in Flagstaff. The seminar will also be broadcast to the Page Instructional Site. The event is free and open to prospective and current students and their parents.
"We sincerely hope that as many students as possible can attend because we provide a wealth of information that often leads to scholarship money," said Scott Talboom, Executive Director of the CCC Foundation.
Talboom added that every year, there are scholarships at CCC that go unawarded because of a lack of applicants. Last academic year, CCC disbursed more than $100,000 in scholarships to students.
The application period for scholarships for the 2016-17 academic year has begun, and runs through March 21, 2016.
