Two-Year Colleges Promote Entrepreneurship

LITTLE ROCK – The Arkansas Association of Two-Year Colleges (AATYC) has launched a statewide effort to promote entrepreneurship.

Applications are once again being accepted for this year’s September Fund scholarships.

Any first-year college-bound student who is the son or daughter of an Arkansas Firefighter, Law Enforcement Officer or Emergency Medical Technician and who lives in Arkansas may apply.

Since the fund’s inception in 2003, it has raised and awarded over $65,000 in scholarships.  Last year eighteen Arkansas high school seniors were each awarded $1,000 for their first year of college. The fund has even more money to award this year.

Radio personalities and hosts of “The Corey and Jay Show”;  Corey Deitz and Jay Hamilton from Clear Channel’s 100.3 The Edge (KDJE/Little Rock), created the September Fund on the second anniversary of September 11, 2001 as a living memorial to the brave first-responder civil servants who died and sacrificed on that day. The fund is registered with the state of Arkansas and has been granted tax-free status by the IRS.
