50th Scholars Program
Hi, my name is Dr. Guy Generals and I am the president of Community College of Philadelphia. Too many high school graduates are unable to go to college because of the costs related to tuition and fees. But because of our 50th Anniversary Scholarship Program, you may be able to come to Community College of Philadelphia with no costs in the areas of tuition and fees. But don’t believe me, ask our scholar recipients about the benefits of receiving a 50th Anniversary Scholarship. Hello, my name is Abiel and I’m majoring in mass media. The 50th Anniversary Scholarship is helping me by paying for books– having that extra financial backup it’s helping me in the process. The first year of my college is really good here. We have great mentors and great teachers that are willing to help you succeed. I’m looking to transfer to Temple University through the dual admissions program. It’s just great here and I do recommend that you come here. My name is Patty and my major is Paralegal Studies. The 50th Anniversary Scholar Program is helping me go to school and meet financial needs. So far the college has been a great experience. I’ve met a lot of professors and I’ve met a lot of different students and I hope to continue this experience throughout pursuing my degree. After I graduate I hope to transfer to Temple University through the dual admissions program. For my career, I hope to become a paralegal and eventually become a lawyer. My name’s Nasir Venable, my major is Communication Studies. My first year in college it felt like home because I’m still in the city. The 50th Anniversary Scholars Program is helping me through financial aid for books and they have a workshop that engages with campus, faculty, staff and students. I want to transfer to Temple University through the dual admissions program. Hopefully I’ll get to Temple, I’ve already been approved by the dual admissions program. CCP is the better path to take if you want to save money. I think financially for people it’s special because you can save any amount of money you need, especially if you’re transferring to colleges.
