NEOSHO, MO.--- The Crowder College Foundation 24th Annual Scholarship Banquet was held today in Neosho. The foundation has awarded 240 students around $200,000 for the academic year. The foundation believes the banquet dinner is rewarding for both students and donors, because it allows the two parties to meet. It also gives the donors the chance to see the students benefitting from their donations. The director of institutional advancement says around 1000 donors give endowments each year.
"We also have program scholarships. We have students who are in specific disciplines, but also just in general studies, so we try to help as many as we can," said Cindy Branscum, Director of Institutional Advancement.
The Crowder College Foundation raises money throughout the year for continued support of scholarships. Anyone interested in establishing a scholarship may contact the Crowder College Foundation Office.
