Gifts to any of the QCC Foundation endowments will last a lifetime! It’s the gift that keeps on giving, being invested conservatively and providing support to QCC students in perpetuity.

The QCC Foundation is proud that 100% of scholarship contributions go directly to scholarship funds and that 90% of program-related contributions are applied directly to program costs.

I would like to support QCC students!

Below are some excerpts from thank you letters received from scholarship recipients:

“I am honored to receive this scholarship and am grateful for the opportunities it will provide me. As a single mother of three children I decided to change my career because I was laid off from my job… Without a doubt, this scholarship will play a key role in achieving my educational dreams.  Because of your generosity, the financial burden placed on me to pursue my education will be reduced.  That means I can spend more time on my studies, research and extracurricular activities and less time worrying about my finances. Thank you for your investment in me and the futures of students like me.”

 “I am beyond grateful to be considered for this scholarship… It helps me to know that everything is possible if we are dedicated and try really hard… Tuition is a great concern for me because I am paying out of pocket and getting this scholarship really helps me to reduce the amount of money that I have to pay.”

“I am honored to be one of the recipients of a QCC Foundation Scholarship. Thanks to your generous support I am the first in my family to attend college. Growing up in a less privileged community has not only offered financial and academic challenges but has also helped me realize the value of a college education… My educational pursuits would not be possible without generous support from scholarship sponsors like you.  Thank you for enabling this opportunity!”

“I would like to thank you for your support and the financial help that this scholarship will award me. As a recipient of this award I am so grateful for the opportunities this will provide me. I heavily rely on financial aid, grants, and student loans to help finance my education and with assistance like this the financial burden is lessened. Receiving this scholarship will help reduce my financial burdens and provide assistance for me as I continue pursuing my education and eventually my career.”
