The deadline is nearing for area graduating high school seniors to apply for a Gateway Technical College Foundation scholarship which would award them at least $500 toward their education at the college. One example of a Foundation scholarship is the President’s Opportunity Scholarship, awarded to one graduate per high school in the Gateway District, which includes high schools in Kenosha, Racine, and Walworth counties. Students must have a minimum grade point average of 2.0 to apply. “Gateway Foundation scholarships are made possible through the generosity of our donors,” says Foundation executive director Jennifer Charpentier. “We are grateful scholarships help students keep their education more affordable. I encourage any graduating high school senior who is thinking about coming to Gateway to apply.” Charpentier adds that the application takes about an hour and can help a student with their educational costs. The application deadline is 6 p.m. March 16. Applicants complete one online application. To apply, please go to gtc.edu/foundationscholarships.
