College accepting endowed and opportunity award applications through April 5
Blinn College classes are already roughly one-third the cost of the same classes at most four-year public universities in Texas. But Blinn students could save even more during the 2013-14 school year by applying for the College’s endowed and opportunity award scholarships by April 5.
Blinn offers a large number of endowed scholarships each year. The interest from each of these funds is typically awarded annually in the form of one or more scholarships per fund.
Opportunity awards are available to Blinn students who have excelled academically or for students who can demonstrate financial need. Blinn also awards valedictorian and salutatorian, Hallstein Board of Trustees, UIL, athletic, band, choral and theatre arts scholarships, which are available to current and incoming Blinn students.
Blinn uses one online application for all scholarships, available at: www.blinn.edu/finaid. Select “Blinn Scholarships” from the left column. For more information, call 979-830-4144.
Founded in 1883, Blinn has one of the state’s highest percentages of students who graduate from leading four-year institutions, and its tuition and fees average about one-third the cost of the same classes at most four-year public universities in the state. In addition to its four campuses in Brenham, Bryan, Schulenburg and Sealy, the College teaches online courses, dual credit for high school and prepares students for employment through workforce education, technical training and vocational education programs.
