The Glen Oaks Community College Foundation is accepting scholarship applications from new and returning Glen Oaks students for the 2018-19 academic year.

Through philanthropic efforts of the Foundation, charitable cash gifts have provided many students the opportunity of an education that will in turn help change their lives in a positive way.

The Glen Oaks Community College Foundation reported that last year 75 students received over $83,000 in scholarships. Additionally, the athletic program received a $35,000 grant to award scholarships to student athletes who are participating on one or more of the Viking sports teams. Selection of the recipients is based on academic ability, financial circumstances and career goals.
