CCCC Foundation Holds Scholarship Awards Ceremony


On Thursday, April 25th, the Cerro Coso Community College Foundation recognized its 2018/2019 scholarship recipients during a Scholarship Awards Ceremony held in the Community Room at the Ridgecrest Campus.

The CCCC Foundation awarded more than $118,000 in scholarships to Cerro Coso students in 2018/2019.

Scholarship recipients were chosen by selection committees based on their academic excellence, work experience, majors, community activities, and commitment to their educational endeavors.

The Foundation distributed more than $75,000 in Promise Scholarships to students last year.

Now in its 41st year of awarding scholarships, the CCCC Foundation is able to recognize deserving students each year thanks to the extraordinary generosity of donors, community partners, faculty, and staff, as well as the financial investments that support the Scholarship Program.
