P O W E L L, W y o. - Northwest College is reaching out to Big Horn Basin residents who didn't take a college class during the fall 2006 semester, offering them a $200 scholarship which can be used on most all classes offered by the college.
The Spring Semester 2007 Reach Out Scholarship is available to anyone, including GED, home school or high school graduates, who didn't enroll in a fall 2006 credit class. In order to receive the $200 scholarship, students must enroll in any combination of one or more classes that add up to three credits. Recipients can choose to enroll in more credit hours, but will only receive the scholarship for the first three credits.
That's all it takes to get a cool $200, an amount that takes a sizable chunk out of the cost of taking a three-credit class. In-state tuition for three credits taken on the Powell campus is $234, plus books and possible course fees, depending on the class. Off campus, the cost is $216, plus books and course fees (if applicable). All classes that meet the scholarship's credit requirement are eligible, including those taken on-site, via the Internet and ITV (live interactive television).
The first step in getting the scholarship is to select and register for one or more credit classes from the Spring Semester 2007 Class Schedule available online. Printed copies can be picked up at NWC centers in Cody and Worland, public libraries across the Big Horn Basin, and on campus in the Enrollment Services Office.
The next step is to print out a Spring Semester 2007 Reach Out Scholarship Form. Mail the completed form to Reach Out Scholarship, Northwest College, 231 W. 6th St., Powell, WY 82435-1895. Forms are also available on campus and at the NWC Cody Center and Worland Center.
