Twelve graduating high school seniors have been awarded the competitive Gemini Student Scholarship, which covers half of one year’s tuition to Finger Lakes Community College.
The Gemini Student Scholarship is available to high school seniors who plan to enroll at FLCC, with a preference given to those who have completed at least 6 credit hours through FLCC’s Gemini program.
Gemini allows eligible high school students to complete FLCC courses prior to high school graduation. Students earn high school and college credit simultaneously. FLCC credit can apply toward a degree at FLCC or transfer to another institution.
