FRCC Has Scholarship Funds for Upcoming Fall Semester
Six weeks before the start of the fall 2014 semester, Front Range Community College has thousands of dollars in scholarships available.
One scholarship is for new students in health-care fields such as Health Information Technology. Another scholarship is for students studying early childhood education. Still other scholarships reward academic performance of recent high school graduates or continuing FRCC students.
- A high priority for a Kaiser Permanente Scholarship – up to $5,000 per year – is for new students in Health Information Technology. The award could follow the student for the two years of study that leads to an Associate of Applied Science degree. With health-care providers relying on electronic medical records, having skilled professionals manage health records is a health-industry priority. The application is available at https://frontrange.academicworks.com/opportunities/490.
Other areas of study that could qualify for a Kaiser Permanent Scholarship include Dental Assisting, Emergency Medical Services, Holistic Health, Massage Therapy, Medical Office Technician, Nurse Aide, Nursing, Pharmacy Technician, or Phlebotomy.
- Employees interested in working in early-childhood settings, including day care centers, are eligible for scholarship support to pursue a certificate or an Associate of Applied Science degree in early childhood education. The foundation has scholarships of up to $2,000 annually for students studying early childhood education. The scholarship gives preference to those already working in the field, but any student interested in the program may apply.
