Chipola AFC Chapter
awards seven scholarships in
The Chipola AFC chapter raises funds for its scholarship endowment through concession sales at Chipola athletic events, a silent auction and other fundraising events. Scholarships recipients are selected from the applications that are received from Chipola College employees, their spouses, their children, and/or their grandchildren, with the employees' children given top priority in the selection process. Seven children and grandchildren of college employees were awarded scholarships for the academic year 2012-2013.
Chipola’s AFC scholarship program was named best in the state by the state organization. It has awarded over $113,000 in scholarships to more than 100 students since 1993.
