Proceeds from the Tri-C Foundation’s Presidential Scholarship Luncheon provide scholarships to those who might not otherwise be able to access or continue their education at Cuyahoga Community College. Since its inception, nearly $10 million has been raised benefiting student scholarships, due to the generosity of Cuyahoga Community College Foundation supporters.
Past Presidential Scholarship Luncheon speakers have included: Tony Blair, Condoleezza Rice, George Stephanopoulos, and Bob Costas to name a few.
