State Representative Kathleen Clyde, who represents Central and Southern Portage County in Ohio’s 75th District, met with 30 of Kent State University’s Choose Ohio First scholarship students on Friday (February 13) in the Kent Student Center to discuss a wide range of issues.

After a brief presentation focused on the need for more State support for affordable higher education, more clean energy jobs, and the need for young people to vote and testify in the Statehouse, she took several questions from students. 

The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded the Kent State University Scholarships for Broadening Participation in the Sciences Program with funding to annually provide 21 scholarships of $5,000 each for undergraduate students.

JMC recognizes the financial burden of obtaining a college education and strives to help offset costs for students. Through our various scholarship programs, we recognize and reward students with high academic excellence, evidence of leadership and community service. Scholarship awards are made possible by generous donations from alumni and friends of the School, and these contributions benefit students in their academic pursuits. In 2014, JMC awarded a record-setting $65,000 in scholarships.

What began as a job to help pay for college and meet new people turned into a bigger reward than Kent State University senior Carissa Deeds could have imagined. 

A few months ago, Deeds was awarded the first Kent State University Libraries Student Assistant Scholarship. In the essay that secured her award, Deeds wrote about how working at the library helped her meet new people and made the transition from high school to college smoother.  

A pair of Kent State University at Trumbull students, Alexandra Dowell and Valerie Helco, were among a group of 10 students who were awarded scholarships monies from the Trumbull Memorial Health Foundation. 

Recipients were chosen based on academics, as well as need, but all are pursuing careers in health care.
