FLC announces Civic Match Scholarship

Monday, December 2, 2019

Fort Lewis College announced a new program for all admitted and current students called the Civic Match Scholarship, which will match scholarships from civic organizations in southwest Colorado. Eligible students attending FLC and who have received a scholarship from a civic organization located in one of 13 counties in southwest Colorado will be awarded a one-time $500 match from the College.
 
“Many of our local students are being recognized for their merit and hard work by civic organizations, and we want them to take advantage of our scholarship match and continue their success as an undergraduate at Fort Lewis College,” says President Tom Stritikus.
 
The counties considered for the award are Alamosa, Archuleta, Delta, Gunnison, La Plata, Mesa, Montezuma, Montrose, Ouray, Rio Grande, Saguache, San Juan, and San Miguel. Any local civic service club, veterans’ post, fraternal society or association, volunteer fire or rescue groups, or local civic league or association of 10 or more persons, not organized for profit but operated exclusively for educational or charitable purposes, will be considered a civic organization. There are more than 30 civic groups located in southwest Colorado.
 
“We are thrilled that our scholarship students will have a chance to boost their award amounts through the FLC Civic Match Scholarship,” said Tami Joslin from Rotary Club of Durango High Noon.
 
The program will begin in Fall 2020. Students are eligible for the one-time Civic Match Scholarship if they have been admitted to FLC, are seeking their first bachelor’s degree, and are enrolled full-time. Students can apply for the match through the Fort Lewis College Foundation scholarship application. The application opened December 1, 2019. Students will need to have an award letter from the civic group to show proof of scholarship and upload it in the application.
 
Scholarships at FLC help prospective and enrolled students pursue an undergraduate degree with financial support. Through the FLC Foundation, private donors contribute to hundreds of scholarships, helping fund tuition costs for students in good academic standing and financial need.

A perfect day is “the day we throw a big party with luscious, animal-free milk, cheese, yogurt, and ice cream,” according to the Perfect Day Foods website. While animal-free creamy goodness may sound odd to the uninitiated, for Adam Hamilton (Philosophy and Biochemistry, ’18), animal-free dairy alternatives are the future.
