Santa Rosa Junior College suspends Doyle Scholarship

SANTA ROSA, Sept. 22, 2008 -- Due to the suspension of dividends at Exchange Bank announced Friday, Santa Rosa Junior College has been forced to suspend the Doyle Scholarship.

Students who are currently getting the scholarship will continue receive funds through the spring semester provided they continue to qualify, but students will not have the option during the 2009-2010 school year.

This year the Doyle has been awarded to 3,108 students. The Scholarship is typically $1,000 per year per student, according to Dr. Robert Agrella, president of the college.

In the 58 years the Doyle Trust has been in existence, roughly $78 million has been awarded to approximately 112,000 students.

Students will still have the option of applying to the other scholarships the college offers and the scholarships awarded on the state level.

?The college has a rich financial aid program,? Dr. Agrella said.
