High-Achieving Scholars Selected for Tri-C Honors Program Fellowships
Program offers top high school graduates scholarships that cover tuition, fees and books
Forty top high school graduates from Northeast Ohio have been selected for a Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) Honors Program Fellowship, which offers scholarships to cover tuition, fees and books as they work toward an associate degree.
The College’s sixth fellowship class features students with at least a 3.5 GPA and outstanding ACT/SAT scores. By entering the scholarship program, they commit to being full-time students, maintaining a high GPA and earning a degree from Tri-C within two years.
The students signed commitment letters with the College during an Aug. 7 ceremony at Tri-C’s Jerry Sue Thornton Center in Cleveland. Each scholarship — funded by donors to the Cuyahoga Community College Foundation — is valued at up to $5,160 per academic year.
“These gifted students chose Tri-C to begin their college journey,” said Herbert Mausser, the College’s director of Honors and Scholars Programs. “I look forward to seeing them cross the commencement stage to collect their degrees in the spring of 2021.”
