Scholarship assists nontraditional students

Published: Wednesday, June 4, 2014 5:30 a.m. CDT

An endowment fund at the DeKalb County Community Foundation that benefits individuals transitioning from the workforce to college, will award a scholarship to a qualified applicant. The deadline to apply for the scholarship is July 1.

The Renaissance Scholarship will award an initial $1,000 scholarship, and is renewable for three succeeding years. Applicants must be residents of DeKalb County. The scholarship will support an individual who has been in the work force and desires to return to the academic world in pursuit of an undergraduate degree in any field of study.

The endowment was started several years ago by the generosity of Yvonne Johnson, retired school teacher of Sycamore.

The Renaissance Scholarship guidelines and application are available on the community foundation’s website, www.dekalbccf.org. For more information, contact Becky Zantout, Grants & Community Initiatives Manager, at 815-748-5383 or becky@dekalbccf.org.
