A record 123 new scholarships were awarded to students to attend Nicolet College second semester, according to the executive director of the Nicolet College Foundation.

"This is the first time we've surpassed the 100 mark for mid-year scholarships and we're thrilled to provide financial help to so many more students," Heather Schallock said in a press release.

Scholarship amounts ranged from $200 to $1,500 to help students cover the cost of tuition and books for the upcoming spring semester 2018.

In all, the Nicolet College Foundation awarded $55,570 in student scholarships for next semester.

This is the fourth year the Foundation awarded scholarships specifically for second semester.

The majority of scholarships are awarded at the start of fall semester and are for the entire academic year.

The Nicolet College Foundation has already awarded 250 scholarships for more than $193,000 for the 2017-18 year, which includes the fall 2017 and spring 2018 semesters.

"Every dollar of this came from the generous financial support of individuals who donated to the Nicolet College Foundation," Schallock noted.
