New River CTC Foundation provides assistance with scholarship application process

[BEAVER, W.Va.] The New River Community and Technical College Foundation is hosting informational sessions in February and March to assist those interested in receiving a scholarship to help pay for college with the application process.

The Foundation is currently accepting scholarship applications online and plans to award nearly $100,000 in scholarships ranging from $500 to $5,000 for the fall 2019 and spring 2020 semesters.

“As a direct result of the generosity of our donors, New River CTC Foundation scholarships will help deserving students achieve their goals and pay for the cost of college,” said Foundation Executive Director Michael Green.

The information sessions will provide step-by-step instructions about the application process, such as how to write an effective personal statement and scholarship essay, requesting letters of recommendation, submitting the online application, and how scholarship funds affect state and federal financial aid.
