NORMAL, Ill.– The Heartland Community College Foundation is extending the eligibility of the trustee scholarship to home school students.
The Trustee Scholarship award is for tuition and fees for 12-18 credit hours per semester and a maximum of 36 credit hours per academic year for up to 4 semesters at Heartland Community College.
Traditionally one Heartland Trustee Scholarship is awarded to a high academic student from each of the District 540 area high schools.
Because home school students did not have a traditionally defined graduating class, they had not been eligible for the award. In meeting with representatives from the home school community, we were able to finalize a process to award the Home School Trustee Scholarship.Chris Downing, Foundation Executive Director
Eligible home schooled students must submit a completed trustee scholarship application by March 1 prior to full-time enrollment at Heartland.
