Illinois Valley Community College along with the LaSalle, Marshall, & Putnam County Regional Office of Education has announced that the application for the American Rescue Plan Act Scholarship for Spring 2024 semester is now available.  Students who are enrolled or planning to enroll in IVCC’s spring CNA, EMT-Basic, LPN or RN programs are eligible to apply.

The application can be printed from the ROE website at www.roe35.org/student-and-family-services/scholarships or the IVCC Foundation webpage www.ivcc.edu/foundation. Forms can also be picked up at the ROE office, Room 102, in the downtown LaSalle County Courthouse, 119 W. Madison Street, Ottawa, or at the Foundation Office, Room C202, on IVCC’s main campus.

Applications for the ARPA scholarship must be completed in their entirety and received at either location by 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 2, 2024.
