LCCC awarded scholarship funding for non-traditional students

CHEYENNE, WYO. –  Thanks to a grant from the Daniels Fund, Laramie County Community College has received $20,000 to provide Boundless Opportunity Scholarships to non-traditional students.

Boundless Opportunity Scholarships help motivated students achieve their goals by providing the means for a better education as well as a better life for themselves and their families.

 “This scholarship will provide a vital source of financial assistance,” said Lisa Murphy, LCCC’s associate vice president of institutional advancement. “More importantly, it demonstrates to these students our investment in their success.”

These need-based scholarships target specific candidates including adult learners, foster care youth, high-school equivalency recipients, juvenile justice youth, returning military, individuals pursuing EMT/paramedic training and individuals pursing early childhood education certification.

“This benefits students who desire to create a better life by investing in their education,” said Linda Childears, president and CEO of the Daniels Fund.  “As our founder Bill Daniels said, ‘America remains the greatest nation on Earth, where boundless opportunities still exist for each and every one of us’.”
