Students looking for money to pay for college in fall 2008 have until April 1 to apply for a Hinds Community College Development Foundation scholarship.
The Hinds Community College Development Foundation manages more than 250 scholarship funds. The foundation will award approximately 400 student scholarships ranging from $500 to $1,660 for the 2008-09 school year.
The application process is easy. Students can access a form for all Hinds scholarships here.
For a Development Foundation scholarship, a student needs three letters of reference, a high school or college transcript, ACT scores, a list of achievements and a letter explaining why he or she should receive a Development Foundation Scholarship. Unlike an ACT scholarship, most Development Foundation scholarships do not require a minimum ACT score.
Scholarships are awarded on the basis of a student's desire for achievement, involvement in extracurricular activities, financial need, grades, test scores and letters of recommendation.
