by June Portnoy

The Ninth Annual Women’s Scholarship Tea, held Thursday, October 6th at Bucks County Community College’s (BCCC) historic Tyler Hall, recognized this year’s 16 “Salute to Mothers” scholarship recipients. This scholarship, administered by BCCC’s Foundation, enables female students who support at least one child to further their education.

In order for these women to qualify, they must have a minimum of a 3.0 G.P.A., take at least six credits each semester and use the scholarship at BCCC. To apply, students must also answer an essay question.

“We encourage applicants to share their challenges of returning to school while caring for their children,” said Christina McGinley, Coordinator, Development Projects and Stewardship of Foundation and Alumni Relations. “Most of these moms also have to work, so receiving this scholarship assistance gives some of them the ability to work a few less hours while taking an extra class that they otherwise couldn’t afford to do.
