The COCC Foundation is asking for our help to review the second cycle of scholarship applications. They have already awarded $1.3 million to students attending COCC this Fall, but have about $600,000 remaining to award to deserving COCC students for the year.

The Foundation is looking for volunteers to review and score scholarship applications. This year the review process is being managed online through our scholarship portal... meaning you can review applications from any device, anywhere in the world. You will be able to log in to our system anytime from October 25 – October 31. The review process should take approximately 1-2 hours and doesn't have to be completed all at once. We provide you with an easy-to-follow scoring rubric and review instructions.

Please register to confirm your volunteer spotCLICK HERE TO REGISTER. Registration closes 10/17. Each volunteer from your household will need to register with their own preferred email.

Are you available to review scholarship applications for approximately 1-2 hours between October 25 – October 31?

P.S. Please pass this invite along to others who may be interested!

Possibly the funniest way to give back!
