(Dothan, AL)—Wallace Community College is now offering a grant that will benefit economically disadvantaged Dothan City and Houston County high school students.
The grant comes as an award from the Wiregrass Foundation to help students get ahead and build successful futures.
“We are very excited about this grant coming to Wallace,” WCC President Linda Young said. “This will give high school students the opportunity to earn college credits, while adjusting to a higher education environment,” she said.
Students who qualify must be seniors, have a 3.0 grade point average and are on a free or reduced lunch program.
The grant is $250,000, which means the scholarship will covers two classes per qualified student. Students interested should contact their school’s guidance counselor.
