A Message From Our EFSC Foundation Director
Dear Titan students, donors, alumni and friends,
The EFSC Foundation hopes that you and your family are well. We are in a season of uncharted territory with the recent COVID-19 pandemic. We had a strong economy, low unemployment and booming industry; one thing is for certain — uncertainty.
With the unexpected loss of jobs and closing of businesses, the state college system will be needed and valued more than ever. We are the first responders in higher education and will be an immediate refuge for so many during any recessionary period.
I am proud and impressed with the resiliency and adaptability of our community working together to keep businesses alive and reaching out to those who are in need. The college worked tirelessly, and online classes resumed this week with an extraordinary 22,000 students “online” – up from the previous record just two weeks ago of 8,000.
Through your contributions of time, talent and treasure, the Foundation remains fully engaged and is prepared to provide assistance to our students.
Students, we are moving forward with our Foundation scholarships for the Fall 2020. There will be no interruption in the scholarship award process. Please take the time to apply. We have scholarship dollars to share. The EFSC Foundation is here to help you receive an excellent education.
The online Titan Scholarships system opened March 9, 2020 for 2020-21 applications and will close on May 18, 2020. Current and accepted students can apply via the link in myEFSC for a variety of EFSC Foundation supported scholarships. Students can also research external scholarships and apply for need-based financial aid.
If you need assistance, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Rest assured, the EFSC Foundation is doing our part to help. In parallel, visit EFSC's COVID-19 Updates page and follow the latest information. This site is being updated literally by the hour and does address most questions.
Stay calm, safe and well. We will get through this together.
Director, EFSC Foundation
