The Joseph and Marie Field Foundation is giving Community College of Philadelphia (CCP) a $1 million gift over five years to expand scholarship opportunities for students who don’t enroll in college immediately after high school.

The gift from the Joseph and Marie Field Foundationwhich is the largest scholarship donation ever made to CCP, will assist students who were unable to attend college immediately after their high school graduation. “Either due to personal, social or financial reasons, many students delay going to college which negatively impacts their ability to achieve a college degree or pursue career opportunities,” said Dr. Guy Generals, president of CCP. “In many cases, the returning students are more mature and return with a stronger commitment to the value of education and its benefits,” according to Generals. The generous scholarship from the Joseph and Marie Field Foundation will provide an opportunity for qualifying students to attend college without incurring any costs for tuition or fees.

Currently, the College offers a Promise scholarship which provides academically qualified Philadelphia high school graduates an opportunity to enroll at CCP with no cost for tuition or fees. The College’s Promise Scholarship, which was started by the Community College of Philadelphia Foundation in 2015 to mark the College’s 50th Anniversary, has supported approximately 900 high school graduates.

Like the Promise scholarship, the Joseph and Marie Field Foundation Scholarship will enable qualifying students to attend CCP with no cost for tuition or fees. As a last dollar scholarship, applicants must file for financial aid in order to qualify.

The Joseph and Marie Field Foundation is dedicated to benefiting health care and child welfare institutions; the arts; music organizations; and historical, educational and humanitarian institutions throughout the city.

The College will begin accepting applications for the scholarship July 8th in anticipation of the fall 2019 semester. Scholarship information is available at ccp.edu/scholarships.

People of the College

SHAWANA
I went to CCP for a while, then I stopped. I was laid off from my job last September. One of my goals was to just focus on school. So when I was laid off, I took the opportunity to come back. Because of CCP’s policies, a lot of my classes transferred and I was able to come back and only take about three to four classes. My plan after graduation is to begin at La Salle while working part time. My education is so important. I let my work get in the way previously; now I’m taking my education seriously!
KAVON
I’m currently at Temple University studying Theater and Business Administration. In my high school, I was encouraged to think outside of the box and think about time management. My counselor from my high school recommended we go to CCP first because the College adds a lot of value and character for students. I ended up enrolling in CCP with a full ride!
PALUMA
I come from Puerto Rico, so the easiest way to transfer my credits and not have a big student loan was to come here to CCP. I was looking around at other colleges and CCP seemed like a really good fit for what I was looking for—and I heard good things. I’m glad I did.
SYMEON
My major here at the College is Business Administration. All of the ‘fun’ activities I thought were just for ‘fun’ as a kid were actually business-related so I decided that would be the best career to get into.
