2021 Scholars and Benefactors Recognition Event
2019 Scholars and Benefactors Luncheon
More than 300 benefactors, scholars and their families and friends, faculty and staff attend Stark State’s annual Scholars and Benefactors Luncheon in the spring each year. The purpose of the annual event is to recognize scholarship donors and recipients. Students have the opportunity to personally thank the generous benefactors who provide their scholarship awards.
Despite Stark State’s affordable tuition, many students still cannot afford to attend college without scholarship assistance. “Working students often fall through the cracks when it comes to federal and state financial aid. Private scholarships provided by our generous donors can really make the difference for these students,” said Para M. Jones, Ph.D, president, Stark State College.
“An advantage for donors is that their philanthropy goes a lot further at Stark State because of our low tuition,” Jones explained. “Many of our donors like the fact that their gifts can impact more students.”
