For students that are looking for some help to purchase textbooks next semester, the Salt Lake Community College Student Association has a book scholarship to help students with financial needs pay for textbooks for this upcoming spring semester.
“[The scholarship] is used to promote our students,” says Christina Fehr, a member of the SLCC Student Senate for the Student Association. “They’ve been working really hard and we like to give them a little bit of a hand when we can.”
The book scholarship can provide students with up to a $250 credit to use at SLCC book stores for the spring 2014 semester, depending on the applicant’s GPA.
Those students who have a 2.5 to 2.9 GPA will receive $200 and students who have a 3.0 GPA or above will receive $250.
“We ask that students that are nearing completion of their diploma to apply,” says Fehr. “But pretty much anybody who demonstrates a need is eligible.”
Those who need the assistance can submit an application that will be verified by Financial Aid. Students who will receive a tuition waiver or any other form of compensation from the college will not be eligible for the scholarship.
Students must be entering into at least their second semester with a minimum of six credit hours.
Applicants need to have a 2.5 GPA or higher to be eligible.
Anyone who meets the requirements for the scholarship is encouraged to apply.
