2021 High School Graduates Eligible For $500 Scholarships At Nunez

Nunez Community College in Chalmette is welcoming incoming freshmen to the Fall 2021 semester with a $500 scholarship. 

The ‘Take Flight’ and ‘We Give A Hoot About You’ Scholarships each offer $500 to students who graduated from high school in 2021. ‘Take Flight’ is available to any 2021 high school graduate currently residing in Louisiana while ‘Give A Hoot’ is specifically for 2021 graduates of Chalmette High School. 

Eligibility and application information for the ‘Give A Hoot’ Scholarship can be found online at Nunez.edu/chs2021 and ‘Take Flight’ can be found at Nunez.edu/takeflight

Dr. Cherie Kay Larocca, Nunez Vice-Chancellor for Education Training and Success, said the scholarships, which debuted in 2020, are a great incentive for 2021 high school graduates.  

“Students entering college for the first time in the fall are already dealing with enough stress. These scholarships are a way for us to make their transition to higher education a little easier,” said Dr. LaRocca. 

Nunez Teaching Grades 1-5 major Katie Mahler said that the ‘Give a Hoot’ Scholarship was a major help when she began at Nunez in 2020.  

“My freshman year at Nunez was a wonderful experience with caring teachers and a positive environment,” said Mahler. 

Nunez has a full slate of on-campus classes available along with online and hybrid options that were developed over the past year. Enrollment is open until the first day of classes: August 16.
