Thinking about College This Fall? Apply Now for Gateway Scholarships

If going to college is on your agenda this fall, the time to apply for a scholarship is now.

Gateway Community and Technical College offers 32 different categories of scholarships for many types of students. The deadline for application is April 1.

A 4.0 grade point average isn't always required, said Will Bradley, Gateway coordinator of financial aid and scholarships. We have scholarships targeted for single parents, minority students, and students with a C average who show academic promise. Only one thing is certain if you don't apply, you wont get one.

In addition to general scholarships for students in any major, Gateway provides a variety of scholarships to students in specific disciplines, such as advanced manufacturing, electrical technology, computer-assisted drafting and design, education, nursing and allied health.

In addition, Gateway has tuition-assistance funds available from a federal grant specifically for low-income students interested in certain allied health careers.

Gateways scholarship application is available at http://www.gateway.kctcs.edu/Financial_Aid/Scholarships.aspx . The webpage includes a list of all Gateway scholarships, eligibility requirements and tips on how to complete and submit an application.
