NUCOR DIPLOMA SQUARED SCHOLARSHIP ::

Nucor Diploma Squared Scholarship logo

 

Nucor-Yamato Steel and Nucor Steel Arkansas have jointly committed up to $75,000 per year to fund a new scholarship program geared toward concurrent high school students in Mississippi County, Arkansas.

 

The new program, known as the Nucor Diploma Squared (Nucor Diploma²) Scholarship, will encourage completion of the Certificate of General Studies at ANC simultaneously with earning a high school diploma.  The Certificate of General Studies consists of the first 31 or 32 credit hours, Nucor logodepending upon exact course selections, of the first year of college for students working toward a baccalaureate degree.  The program encompasses provisions similar to the Great River Promise in that students must attend four years at a public or private Mississippi County, Arkansas high school (including Buffalo Island Central), achieve a 95% attendance and punctuality record over the four years of high school, and have no drug or DWI/DUI offences.

 

The program also encompasses provisions similar to the Early College Scholarship in that students must achieve a placement test score (ACT of 19+ or equivalent) to be eligible for the Arkansas Course Transfer System general education courses offered through the Early College Program.  The Nucor Diploma² Scholarship is unique in that eligible students must have an achievable path to earn the Certificate of General Studies, or beyond, by the final term of their high school senior year.  Eligible students will receive a scholarship from Nucor via the ANC Foundation that will cover all tuition and fees except for $10 per credit hour as well as a book/mandatory supplies stipend of up to $100 per course limited to actual costs.  Furthermore, participating students and their parent(s) will agree to contact information to Nucor-Yamato Steel and Nucor Steel Arkansas for purposes of outreach outlining potential college assistance opportunities for students majoring in upperclassmen fields sought by Nucor (engineering, metallurgy, chemistry, etc.).  Participating students and their parent(s) also will agree to participate in two Nucor/ANC celebration/feedback events hosted at ANC occurring (1) near the end of the student's first year in the program, and (2) near the end of the student's senior year.  The Nucor Diploma² Scholarship will be available on a first come, first served basis with priority given to students already in the Nucor Diploma² Scholarship program.

 

Students cannot combine the Nucor Diploma² Scholarship and Early College Scholarships in the same semester.
