Colby Community College announced the establishment of a full tuition scholarship to fund an associate degree through ColbyConnect, CCC’s online learning platform.

The award is part of the college’s pilot program to offer an online associate degree that could be completed in one to two years.

"ColbyConnect brings education to learners who are not able to attend our physical campus,” said vice president of academic affairs Brad Bennett. “Providing more access fulfills our mission."

The student receiving the scholarship is expected to begin classes in June and finish within two years. Other requirements include a minimum GPA of 3.0 while passing all courses. The recipient will also provide feedback to a committee in regularly scheduled meetings that take place either in-person or by conference call.

Students may begin applying May 12 with a priority deadline of 5 p.m. on May 26.  

Applications are available at www.colbycc.edu or by emailing connect@colbycc.edu.
