San Joaquin Delta College Awards over $248,000 in Scholarships
San Joaquin Delta College awarded over $248,000 in scholarships at its annual Scholarship Awards Ceremony on Thursday, August 11, in Atherton Auditorium.
This year, 385 awards were made to over 200 students, with many receiving multiple scholarships. Students are awarded scholarship money under various criteria, including grade point average (GPA) and demonstrated financial need. Awards range from $100 to $2,000.
Delta’s Scholarship Awards Ceremony has been an annual event since 1980, when the first program awarded $43,000 in scholarships. This event recognizes the achievements of San Joaquin Delta College students and the generosity of many local individuals and organizations whose financial support makes the Scholarship Awards Ceremony possible. During the past 31 years, Delta’s Scholarship Program has awarded almost $5 million in scholarships.
Denise Donn, Director of Financial Aid & Veteran Services, says Delta’s success in building its scholarship fund depends on the labors of its employees and generosity of community members. “The pre-ceremony work takes many months. The application process is very involved and takes many hours of volunteer time. We deeply appreciate the commitment of our staff and community partners.”
Denise Donn adds, “The scholarship ceremony is one that makes everyone ‘feel great.’ It's a wonderful experience to watch the joy and gratitude unfold as we help make our scholarship recipient's dreams come true!”
