The Rotary Club of Sealy presented Blinn College with a check for $2,000 to support students enrolled in career and technical training courses at the Blinn – Sealy campus.
The funds will be used toward 10 separate scholarships of $200 each.
“Financial aid isn’t available for most workforce education courses, so scholarships such as these are often the only assistance available to students seeking career and technical training,” said Lisa Caton, Blinn-Sealy campus director. “This gift can make a huge difference in the lives of local families, and we’re very thankful to the Rotary Club for making this possible.”
Interested students can complete a scholarship application on campus. Applicants must spell out their educational goals, explain why they are taking workforce classes and provide a letter of recommendation from a non-relative.
If selected for the scholarship, students must volunteer with the Rotary Club for a better understanding of the club and its mission to unite neighbors, friends and community leaders and to create positive, lasting change in our communities and around the world.
Blinn offers healthcare, computer technology and career development courses on its Sealy campus, and plans to offer certified nurse aide, phlebotomy technician and AutoCAD (Computer-Aided Drafting) courses this Fall.
