ASCC Alumni Association Announces Fall 2014 Scholarship Recipient
The American Samoa Community College (ASCC) Alumni Association offers one of several scholarships available to students who do not quality for the federal financial aid available to those born as US nationals or citizens. Students born in the US and its territories have access to resources such as the Pell Grant to help them meet the cost of college, but for those who do not qualify for this assistance pursuing a college education can be a formidable financial challenge. With this in mind, the ASCC Alumni Association raises funds each semester to provide assistance to one promising non-Pell student in the form of a $500 scholarship. At a ceremony earlier this month, the Association awarded its fall 2014 scholarship to Ms. Miranda Galo of Matu’u.
