PIC Donates $10,500 for NMC Scholarships (January 29, 2010)

As part of its commitment to expanding higher education opportunities for CNMI students, the Pacific Islands Club today announced that it is donating $10,500 to establish a scholarship program for Northern Marianas College students.

“For many years, the Pacific Islands Club has been a strong partner of the College and has always been generous with their contributions to our students,” NMC Interim President Lorraine Cabrera said. “This donation will go a long way in helping students achieve their educational goals.”

The PIC Saipan scholarship program aims to (1) promote higher education by providing financial assistance for college students in their pursuit of professional careers; (2) to help alleviate the critical current and future shortage of skilled and trained workforce for the CNMI; (3) to provide current public and private sector employees with opportunities to improve their knowledge and skills, and enhance their career and professional development.

The scholarship program will award seven $1,500 scholarships to full time NMC students who are pursuing a degree in business, criminal justice, nursing, education, natural resource management, liberal arts, or hospitality management. The scholarships will be awarded based on merit, eligibility, content of a written essay, and interview process.

Pacific Islands Club General Manager Kieran Daly hopes the donation will attract more students to pursue their degrees at the Northern Marianas College.

“We are proud to help the Northern Marianas College advance its mission of helping our students improve their quality of life by advancing their educational and professional development,” said Daly.

To be eligible for the scholarship, applicants must be U.S. citizens (or green card holders) and a CNMI resident for the past three years; be accepted and enrolled as a full-time student at NMC; have a high school or college cumulative GPA of 2.00 or better; be seeking an NMC degree as specified in the guidelines above in the academic semester in which the scholarship is being awarded; applicant must also sign an agreement stating that he or she will work in the Commonwealth after graduating from the Northern Marianas College for a period twice as long as the period for which applicant received the PIC Saipan Scholarship.
