A $1 million gift has been given to establish a scholarship for students who attend any one of New Hampshire’s seven community colleges. It is the single largest private donation given to the college system.
The donation came from Anna Grace and Paul Holloway and will create The Holloway Family Scholarship Fund to support students with financial need to gain access to the opportunities provided by their local community college.
“Our goal in making this gift is to inspire and support men and women across New Hampshire seeking affordable, flexible education and connecting them to local careers,” said Holloway in a statement. “It’s not about us; it’s about the students and the future of New Hampshire.”
