NSCC Foundation Scholarships – 2021 Cycle

Reminder that this year’s Foundation Scholarship cycle will open to students on March 1st.  The new scholarship system will handle all applicants (current students, new fall 2021 students, ESL students, ABE students, etc.), eliminating the need for multiple application sites. Based on some feedback we’ve received, the scholarship system will close on March 31st, and review will start immediately afterwards, so that the review period will be completed by mid April.  Reviewer training will take place in March, and reviewers are an important part of the process.  We hope you will consider being a reviewer this year!

More information will follow in the coming weeks, and in the meantime, if you have any questions, please contact please contact Laurie LaChapelle,;  Mariflor Uva,; or Kathy Faulkner,




The Planning, Research & Resources office is looking
for scholarship reviewers!   

This past year we acquired a new software system, AwardSpring, for our scholarship program.  We are so excited about this system, which has a lot more functionalilty than the previous one.  Scholarship reviewers are an important part of this process, and reviewing scholarship applications is a great way to get to know our students from a different angle.  We hope you are interested in being a reviewer?   If so, please click the link and fill out the google form. vkYu22iNGWz8Vtyn9.   In March, you will be invited to attend a training session.    Thank you so much.   We look forward to working with you! 

Please reach out to me if you have any questions - Kathy Faulkner at

Welcome to the
Equality & Equity Project

 As part of our commitment to Anti-Racism, Diversity & Inclusion, the Equality & Equity Project will provide historical and present-day information about the contributions, challenges, culture, and daily lives of the many vital groups that make up our NSCC community, and the larger world.

We invite you to visit often, reflect on what you see and read, discuss it with others and, hopefully, expand your knowledge base, appreciation, and understanding of groups beyond your own.

February Deep Dive :

American astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson was asked: Why aren't there more women in science?  He points out that although he's not a woman, he does know what it's like to pursue a career in a field that defied the expectations of society. Watch his answer here.

Think about this:

This is an example of white privilege:  I can, if I wish, arrange to be in the company of people of my race most of the time.
