Clovis Community College Receives Grant...

Clovis, NM — Clovis Community College announced today that it has received a $30,000 Daniels Fund grant to support adult learners who fall into one of the following categories; a GED recipient, have previously been in foster care or in the juvenile justice system, returning military personnel, or individuals pursuing EMT/paramedic training.

According to Dr. David Caffey, Vice President for Institutional Effectiveness, "This grant will assist qualifying students in earning college degrees and preparing for productive careers. We are grateful for the continuing commitment of the Daniels Fund in helping students grow and succeed."

The Daniels Fund operates the Daniels Fund Scholarship Program and the Daniels Fund Grants Program in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming. The Fund was established in 1997 by Bill Daniels, a pioneer in cable television known for his kindness and generosity to those in need.

The grant will pay tuition and required fees for approximately 15 recipients each spring and fall term and 10 students each summer term over the next two years. Eligibility requirements reflect the donor's commitment to providing a second chance at education for those who may benefit, and to those who serve others through the military and emergency medical services. The awards are need-based.

The CCC Office of Financial Aid will have additional information about the scholarships after December 1, 2006. For more information about the grant or Clovis Community College, call 769-4060, or visit www.clovis.edu.
