Applications for the Carl Albert State College (CASC) Scholars Program and CASC Scholarships are due by Feb. 9.
Mandy Roberts, CASC Executive Director of the Development Foundation, said, “We have a vast number of scholarships that current and incoming CASC students can apply for as they plan for the 2018-19 academic year. Thanks to the generosity of many individuals and businesses throughout the area as well as CASC faculty and staff, the benefits to students receiving CASC scholarships and CASC Scholars Program recipients are substantial. We encourage students to take advantage of these opportunities and apply prior to the Feb. 9 deadline.”
Regarding the CASC Scholars Program, Jennifer Humphreys, CASC Vice President of Enrollment Management, said, “The financial benefits of being in the Scholars Program are significant. Students selected to participate in the program are awarded a tuition waiver for 16 hours per semester, housing in a semi-private room, and half the meal costs for 15 meals per week in the campus cafeteria. Students are responsible for course fees plus half the meal plan cost.”
Roberts added, “The many benefits provided Scholars are hard to find elsewhere. This program provides just about everything a student could ask for the first two years of college.”
Humphreys shared, “This program is a great deal for students. It is highly competitive to be selected, and I believe participants’ success while at Carl Albert plus later down the road can be contributed to what the Scholars Program offers.
“The Scholars Program provides students their first experience of campus life in a wonderful setting. CASC is an awesome place to start a college career,” she said.
To be considered for the Scholars Program, high school seniors are required to have a minimum ACT composite score of 21 and a 3.0 GPA. Recipients are required to live on the Poteau campus. All students applying for this scholarship must submit an application for admission, Scholars Program scholarship application, and a resume by the Feb. 9 deadline.
Regarding housing at CASC’s Poteau campus, Roberts explained, “We are so proud of the dorms on campus. Our student housing provides students a great place to live.”
