SCHOLARSHIP AMOUNT:Up to $1,000 per year (September-June) for tuition, fees and books.
BACKGROUND:This scholarship was created by June Heinrich, the Director of Triton’s Senior Studies Program, in 1995. The goal was “to encourage and help those aged 55 and older to live and learn as fully in the second half of life as in the first half, by pursuing a course of study they had little or no time for earlier, or by training for a new career, or by seeking to challenge their minds for the sheer joy of living and learning ‘for credit’.”
REQUIREMENTS: • Part-time or full-time, degree seeking student. • 55 years of age or older. • Applicants must be beginning or continue to study towards a Triton College degree or certificate. • Applicants must complete at least 6 credit hours per semester. • For renewal of the scholarship for a second semester, recipients must have a GPA of at least 2.5 or above. • Must have received a high school diploma or a G.E.D.
