Scholarship game-changer for students, Edison State.


PIQUA — With the continued issues surrounding the nation’s healthcare COVID-19 pandemic, Edison State Community College understands the stress this challenge has placed on local communities. Graduating high school seniors are no exception as they are faced with uncertainty in many directions coupled with difficult decisions about their plans for starting college in the fall.

As part of its continued support and ongoing commitment to both students and the communities the college serves, Edison State has expanded its College Credit Plus (CCP) tuition scholarship offer to include a larger population of students. This expanded opportunity offers a 100-percent tuition scholarship for all graduating high school seniors in the Edison State service area and CCP partner high schools regardless of their level of participation in the CCP program.

Dr. Doreen Larson, president of Edison State, understands the vital role the college plays in the community.

“Edison State historically reports a high level of successful student transfer to four-year universities. Within this environment of uncertainty, I am confident in the continuing strength of our transfer partnerships along with the unsurpassed teaching excellence that Edison State offers. This scholarship incentive is designed to promote the community college option to more high school graduates and their families” said Larson.

“The mission of Edison State is to provide the comprehensive resources for educational achievement that align with the dreams and aspirations of our students. We do not want any high school graduate to set aside their dream of attending college, even for a short time. I am excited to offer the personal career guidance, intern and apprentice options, and real-world experience of our faculty that are the hallmarks of an Edison State education to every high school graduate in our region” said Larson.

Edison State offers over 100 degrees, certificates, and short-term technical certificates in the areas of Business, Engineering and Manufacturing, Health Sciences, Information Technology, and Social and Public Services designed to help graduates enter the workforce. In addition, partnerships held with four-year universities across the state and country provide a seamless transfer upon a students’ completion.
