Sedalia, Missouri – State Fair Community College has announced the new Bridge Scholarship for the fall semester for students who graduated from high school in 2020 and who have taken dual credit courses at SFCC or any other college within the past two years.
Any 2020 high school graduate who has taken dual credit courses is eligible to receive up to $500 in the fall and in the spring 2021 semester toward tuition, fees, textbooks and supplies. To be eligible, students must be legal United States residents; first time students at SFCC enrolled full-time (12 or more credit hours), degree-seeking; and have completed an application for admission to SFCC and the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid).
“Dual credit students show a level of dedication and commitment to their studies that should be rewarded,” said Dr. Joanna Anderson, college president. “We want to help these students reach their educational goals, whether they wish to transfer on to another college or earn a degree or certificate with State Fair Community College.”
SFCC offers more than 70 transfer, career or technical associate degrees or short-term certificates in agriculture, business and computers, health sciences, human services, and industrial technology. Associate transfer degrees allow students to complete their first two years at SFCC before continuing to a four-year college or university to earn a bachelor’s degree.
Earlier this month, SFCC announced that all 2020 graduating seniors in the college’s taxing district will receive one free three-credit hour course this summer.
