(Editor's Note: The following information was submitted by Northern Essex Community College.)

Recently, 190 Northern Essex Community College students were awarded 222 scholarships totaling more than $200,000 for the 2015/2016 academic year.

“Our students are deeply appreciative of the many generous individuals and organizations that make these scholarships possible,” said Jean Poth, vice president of institutional advancement. “For many of our students, a scholarship is what allows them to stay in school.”

Scholarships range from $500 to $5000 and come from a variety of sources, including private donors, memorial donations, local businesses, and private foundations.

There are several new scholarships this year including the RM Technologies, Inc. Engineering Scholarship for Incoming Freshman, the Leewood Realty, LLC Sustainability Scholarship, and the Greater Merrimack Valley Human Resources Association Scholarship.

“Establishing a scholarship can be a very appropriate way of honoring an individual,” said Poth. “A scholarship also is a very effective way of giving back to the community since the great majority of our students are from the Merrimack Valley.”

To establish a permanent endowed scholarship, donors must make a minimum pledge of $10,000. For more information, contact Poth at 978 556-3624 or
