Calhoun offers scholarships to 2007 high school grads

Calhoun Community College is offering full-tuition scholarships for high school graduates. Scholarships are available for 2007 high school graduates from the college’s service area of Madison, Morgan, Lawrence or Limestone counties. Calhoun’s eight-week summer semester classes begin May 23.

To qualify, students must:

  • Graduate in May with at least a 3.0 grade-point average on a 4.0 scale.

  • Enroll at Calhoun for 2007 fall semester, registering for six semester hours in a degree program.

  • Apply for the 2006-2007 Pell grant by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid form.

  • Complete a Calhoun scholarship application and admissions application.

  • Maintain regular class attendance.

    According to Calhoun’s Student Financial Aid Office, students qualifying for a Pell grant must first use this funding to enroll. Calhoun will provide funding for full tuition for at least six but no more than 12 semester hours for those students not qualifying for the Pell grant. Scholarships do not pay fees or buy textbooks.

    Application deadline is April 15. Scholarships will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis until the fund is exhausted. Complete instructions for scholarship applications are available on-line at

    Call the Calhoun Foundation Office at 306-2579 or e-mail for more information.
