Laplante attends college on scholarship


Dominic Laplante, of Electric City, is one of the 29 students at the Community Colleges of Spokane who are receiving help with the cost of their education this fall through the Washington State Opportunity Scholarship’s Career and Technical Scholarship program, the school said.

To be eligible, students must be low- to middle-income and seeking degrees, certificates or apprenticeships in high-demand trades, health care or STEM fields.

The scholarship program provides $1,500 per student each quarter for those taking 12 credits or more, or $750 each quarter for at least six credits. Scholarship recipients will receive the financial help each quarter for the duration of their program provided they continue to meet all eligibility requirements.

Six of the students receiving opportunity scholarships this fall are students at Spokane Falls Community College and 23 are students at Spokane Community College.
