IHCC offering scholarship to career academy, concurrent enrollment high school students

OTTUMWA -- Indian Hills Community College is trying to make it easier for high school students who are taking college courses to finish their associate of arts and associate of applied science degrees.

The college has announced a new Connect 2 College scholarship that is available to IHCC concurrent enrollment and career academy students who want to continue their academic studies with Indian Hills.

The $600 award can be applied toward tuition, books and fees and will be divided evenly between the student’s first three terms.

“We are excited to offer the Connect 2 College scholarship to area high school students,” says IHCC Vice President Matt Thompson. “Within our 10-county region, there is a significant need for a skilled workforce. We hope this scholarship encourages students to pursue and complete a college degree they actually started working on while they were in high school.”

Thompson added that the scholarship “can be added to any other scholarships a student might be eligible to receive.” He says that the new scholarship offering will be effective for the 2018 fall term.

To qualify for the Connect 2 College scholarship a student must have graduated from high school and be attending IHCC immediately following high school graduation, have an overall minimum grade point average of 2.0 in In IHCC concurrent enrollment courses, maintain a 2.0 cumulative GPA while enrolled at IHCC, and complete a scholarship application.
