A generous grant from the Autzen Foundation to the Clatsop Community College Foundation will fund a project that provides additional support to low-income students enhancing their chances for success at CCC.
The grant will allow the college to acquire a bank of laptops and core course textbooks which will be made available to qualified students through a check out process. This will allow students with busy work and study schedules to work from home, and will ease the burden low-income students often face when confronted with expensive materials and technology required for coursework. The CCC Foundation, the college and the Autzen Foundation are committed to supporting a diverse student body. This project addresses specific needs of low-income students, and provides access to critically important learning tools including books, subscriptions to required electronic course materials and technology.
