SCHOLARSHIP SEASON IS NEAR and the Sacramento City College Scholarship Foundation wants to remind all students not to become one of the walking dead. The time to prepare for scholarship applications is now, according to Mary Leland executive director of the foundation.
“In October the foundation published a zombiethemed reminder card,” Leland said. “The cards were a collaborative design effort from our office staff, and we hoped zombies might get their attention.”
The intent of the card’s design was not to warn students about a possible threat from the undead on campus, but instead to alert students about the application period and their potential eligibility for one of the many scholarships administered by the foundation.
“It’s a myth for students to think they cannot apply for a scholarship unless they have a 3.5 or a 4.0 grade point average,” Leland said.
“We have 262 scholarships for every level of grade point average, major field of study or background,” she said, “and students should not be timid about applying.”
According to information provided on the back of the foundation’s reminder notice, the scholarship application period begins on Jan. 6, 2014, with a deadline for submissions on March 7, 2014.
