DANIELSON- The QVCC Foundation has announced the establishment of two new endowed funds, The Mary E. Patenaude Putnam Bank Scholarship and the LiR Endowment Fund for Community Engagement, both will support non-credit job-focused training programs for citizens of northeast Connecticut. The Mary E. Patenaude Putnam Bank Scholarship was established November 2013 in memory of Mary E. Patenaude, a Putnam Bank Board member. This scholarship is for non-credit students who are working to improve their lives by enrolling in a job focused program at QVCC. QVCC’s LiR Scholarship and Executive Council has endowed a scholarship fund for non-credit, job-focused students at QVCC. LiR members are very active in campus life and are valued members of the QVCC college community. The QVCC Foundation will proudly provide over $90,000 in scholarships to local students this spring. Scholarship applications will be available at QVCC’s website as of Feb. 3. For more information contact Cherie Poirier at 860-412-7317 or firstname.lastname@example.org. To learn more about LiR, call the Office of Community Engagement at 860-412-7300 or visit http://www.qvcc.commnet.edu/cpl/lir/.
