The Augusta Technical College Foundation is pleased to announce that the Community Health Foundation, a service delivery line of CHSGa, has donated $6,000 in scholarships to support students enrolled in the Practical Nursing Program at Augusta Technical College.
Named the CHSGa Practical Nursing Student Scholarship, the scholarships will be available later this summer as part of the College’s move to an online scholarship application portal, making it easier for students to locate and apply for scholarships. Eligibility criteria include enrollment in the Practical Nursing Program, good academic standing, and a completed FAFSA on file with the Office of Financial Aid.
“This fund is being established as part of our relationship with the College, in particular to support students in the Practical Nursing Diploma Program. The CHSGa service delivery lines employ hundreds of LPNs throughout the state. As part of our initiative to support students’ pursuit of their entry-level careers and career paths, this scholarship fund seeks to set that process in motion,” stated Amy Abel, Director of Communications for CHSGa . “Students will be able to apply for funding to assist with books, uniforms, support for clinical experiences, and licensing exam preparations.”
