COC students gathered Wednesday for an awards ceremony granting departing students scholarship awards.
Families, friends and even faculty came out in support, with the scholarships varying in different categories and subjects ranging from Early Childhood Development to a Spanish American institute scholarship.
The scholarships are based upon academic achievement and/or financial need, with over $244,000 in scholarships being given.
Each scholarship had different requirements that had to be met, though some requirements being more vigorous than others.
But after speaking with students after the ceremony, many were pleased that all of their hard work paid off.
For any student looking to apply for one of these scholarships for the 2019-2020 academic year, the application deadline is March 5, 2019, and the submission form can be found on the Canyons website.
