Three Rivers College Foundation Awards Over $425,000 in Scholarships

The Three Rivers College Foundation’s twenty-seventh annual Scholarship Awards were announced on Monday, May 18, 2020. Generous contributions led to over $425,000 in scholarships awarded to a record-breaking 174 students.

Betty Baillargeon, Director of Institutional of Advancement stated, “An unprecedented time in our country forced us to cancel our in-person celebration. While we all do our part to stop the spread of the corona virus, we still have much to celebrate, especially these deserving students. So, we have posted a special presentation acknowledging all of the students, their scholarships and the donors.” The video presentation can be found at .

The total scholarships awarded came to just over $425,000, which includes $50,000 in summer scholarships. The majority of the scholarships support students through the fall and spring semesters, but many students who have exhausted their financial aid and cannot afford summer courses benefit from the summer scholarships which helps expedite their path to graduation.
