Email this article 01/18/2012

The Greater Texas Foundation has awarded SWTJC a $5,000 grant to support need-based scholarships for students.

In a letter to SWTJC President Dr. Ismael Sosa, Jr.,  Aubrey Wynn Rosser, Ph.D., executive director of the foundation, notified the college that the grant was being awarded from the foundation's President's Fund in recognition of SWTJC's selection as a finalist for the Aspen Prize for Community College Excellence.

"We appreciate Southwest Texas Junior College's commitment to post-secondary persistence and completion," Dr. Rosser said in his letter.

The Aspen Prize recognized 10 national community college finalists last month in Washington, D.C., for their outstanding academic and workforce outcomes in both absolute performance and improvements over time.

According to Dr. Sosa, the scholarships will be awarded through the college's Friends and Alumni Network fund.

"We take great pride in being named one of the top 10 community colleges in the U.S." Dr. Sosa said. "We thank the Greater Texas Foundation for recognizing our success with this generous grant and I know our students will put it to good use."

Headquartered in Bryan, Texas, the foundation serves the citizens and educational institutions of Texas by supporting initiatives that increase rates of post-secondary enrollment and completion for all Texas students, with a particular focus on students who may encounter barriers to post-secondary success.
