The Loveland Philo Club is offering a community college/technical school scholarship for residents in the Loveland/Berthoud area.

Residents must be able to show financial need and strong motivation to complete occupational training, have a career goal and school in mind, and be determined to succeed in the work world. There is no age restriction on who may apply.

Scholarships in the past have included, but are not limited to:  automotive and aviation mechanics, radiological technician, cosmetology, construction management, computer graphics, certified nurse assistant, dental assistant, culinary arts, retail merchandising, careers in childcare, and business.

Applications are available at area high schools, The Women’s Center, Aims Community College in Loveland, Front Range Community College, The House of Neighborly Service, Alternatives to Violence and Project Self-Sufficiency.

He is setting a goal and working hard – with some help from Philo along the way. Jordan Johann, recipient of a Philo Scholarship last year, is a good example of how a little positive encouragement and financial support can help people on their way to meet their goals – or cope with a job change. Jordan is taking classes in Economics at Front Range Community College, Fort Collins, while he works as an Assistant Manager at McDonalds in Johnstown. Jordan appreciates the financial support to pay tuition, with a side benefit of being able to move into his own living quarters while working and studying. He comments “I would be working so much overtime to try to make ends meet if I didn’t have that extra boost from Philo. ” Jordan has short-range goals of finishing his college work, becoming a manager in the fast-food industry, and then moving on to other professional managerial work. He highly recommends that other people with career goals and the ambition to work hard apply for the Philo Scholarship grants for technical training or 2-year associate degrees.
