The Kirtland Community College Foundation recently awarded over $6,000 in scholarships, providing financial support for deserving students to offset the cost of pursuing higher education in one of Kirtland’s academic programs. Multiple endowed scholarship funds exist, providing vital support to one of the central missions of the college, which is to offer affordable educational opportunities for the citizens of the Kirtland region. A new General Scholarship Fund started this year — and supported by Kirtland faculty and staff members — made it possible to award five additional scholarships from the previous semester.
