Foundation scholarship application window open

PANAMA CITY – The Gulf Coast State College Foundation is starting the scholarship application cycle for the 2018-19 school year, and all students planning to attend Gulf Coast in the fall 2018 academic term are eligible to apply. High school seniors are also encouraged to apply now in anticipation of their freshman year at GCSC.

Applicants must have a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher and plan to take six or more credit hours at Gulf Coast State College. The deadline to apply is March 15, 2018. Last year, the Foundation awarded more than 800 scholarships to students totaling more than $900,000.

“In most cases, our scholarships can be used to help cover about 45 percent of a student’s tuition expenses,” said Dunkin McLane, Assistant Director of the GCSC Foundation. “They can be used to help cover tuition, books and other educational costs. If you’re planning to take classes in the fall of 2018, now is the time to apply.”
