San Juan College Wins $2,000 Student Scholarship from CampusWorks
Bradenton, FL – October 25, 2019 – San Juan College is the most recent winner of a $2,000 scholarship from strategic higher ed consulting firm CampusWorks. In celebration of the company’s 20th anniversary, CampusWorks has launched a scholarship giveaway to support student success—the firm has pledged to donate $2,000 scholarships to 20 different colleges and universities across the United States and Canada, providing a total of $40,000 in financial support for students in need.
San Juan was selected randomly through a raffle that was held during CampusWorks’ 20th Anniversary celebration on October 18 at the Association of Community College Trustees (ACCT) Leadership Congress in San Francisco, California. A member of the hotel staff drew the winner. (See the list of scholarship winners.)
Founded in 1999, CampusWorks’ vision is to improve society by making higher education accessible to everyone, and offering these scholarships is a big step toward making that vision a reality. “After two decades working directly with institutions, we see firsthand the challenges many students face,” said CampusWorks CEO Liz Murphy. “We are thrilled that this scholarship will help students pursue their educational goals at San Juan College.”
As the cost of higher education continues to rise in many areas, more students are relying upon scholarship support to achieve their educational goals. “We are extremely grateful to CampusWorks, for their generosity,” said San Juan College President, Dr. Toni Hopper Pendergrass. “The scholarship will enable even more of our students to succeed in their educational journey by providing them with additional financial support as they work toward securing a future for themselves and their families.”
