Citizens for Progress scholarship provides opportunity for Warren County students

Dec. 2, 2015

Attending Motlow State Community College just became more affordable for Warren County students who can qualify and benefit from the Citizens for Progress (CFP) scholarship.

The CFP scholarship program vision is to help provide high school and non-traditional students residing in Warren County an opportunity to attend a college or technical school.

Additionally, the program hopes to provide an opportunity for students to gain training in order to obtain a well-paying job within Warren County. By design, the scholarship will not only provide employers in Warren County with a well-trained workforce, but also provide incentive for young people to remain in the county.

Students enrolled in the fast growing and exciting mechatronics program in particular may benefit from this new scholarship program.

The program carries with it certain eligibility provisions for each category of students, but the essence is the scholarship is provided for Warren County residents who are either Warren County high school students, or who are county residents working at a Warren County manufacturer. Additional eligibility requirements and program stipulations exist.

The CFP scholarship is a last dollar program, therefore all students must apply for, qualify and accept all local, state, and/or federal financial aid to be eligible to receive CFP funds. The scholarship will be awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis and will only supply tuition money on a last-dollar basis directly to the attending institution.

Applicants for the CFP scholarship program who are interested in attending Motlow State Community College must meet certain deadlines for the application process, beginning Apr. 15, 2016.

For more information on the CFP scholarship contact Melody Edmonds, Motlow McMinnville campus director, at medmonds@mscc.edu or call 931-668-7010; or the Warren County High School guidance department at 931-668-5858.
