CCC offers new scholarship to LCCC students
Cedar Crest College will be offering a new scholarship for Lehigh Carbon Community College students. Lehigh Carbon Community College (LCCC) was founded in 1966 with its main campus located in Schnecksville, Pennsylvania, along with other campuses in Allentown, Jim Thorpe, Tamaqua and Lehigh Valley International Airport.
“Cedar Crest College has been committed to making education accessible and affordable throughout our 152-year history,” the informational page on the Cedar Crest website quotes President Meade. “We have seen the great success our transfer students from LCCC have at Cedar Crest and we are so pleased to provide this extra financial support to such worthy students.”
The scholarship will be for students from Lehigh Carbon who will be enrolling into a full-time undergraduate program at CCC. There are multiple disciplines from LCCC that will transfer into a bachelor's degree at CCC. Full time male students who will be applying to the Nursing or Medicine Technology fields at Cedar Crest that meet the requirements for the scholarship can also be considered.
On September 25 President Meade met with Lehigh Carbon President Ann Bieber to sign off on the new scholarship. The scholarship is based on merit; a grade point average of 2.0-2.99 will grant the student with $16,000, a GPA of 3.0-3.49 will offer $17,000 and lastly 3.5-4.0 will earn the student $18,000.
“LCCC students have been incredibly successful when they transfer to our partner colleges and universities, and this scholarship will help to remove financial barriers to their success.” LCCC President Ann Bieber said, from the informational site on Cedar Crest’s website, “We value our partnership with Cedar Crest and are thrilled that our students will benefit from the college’s generosity.”
