Grant will be used for library
The Widows Home of Augusta, Georgia, Inc. gave a $4,000 grant to the Augusta Technical College Foundation. The grant will be used to purchase college textbooks for the Special Populations Lending Library.
The library loans textbooks to students who might be ineligible for traditional financial aid and have no resources to acquire a textbook for use in class.
The Special Populations Department works primarily with female students who may benefit from assistance with issues related to being a single parent, displaced homemaker, or those who are pursuing a nontraditional field of study.
