The Mitsubishi Motors USA Foundation recently partnered with a local dealer in Normal, Illinois to help develop a scholarship. This scholarship is designed to benefit graduates of students in the area, encouraging them to attend the Heartland Community College.
This scholarship is just one more way Mitsubishi aims at giving back. Although it’s not as large as some of Mitsubishi’s other philanthropic efforts, the Mitsubishi Community College scholarship will enable 15 students to attend the local college, an award of over $52,000 dollars total.
“Mitsubishi holds family and citizenship as core values and has a longstanding history of supporting the local community,” said Don Swearingen, executive vice president, Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. “MMNA believes charitable giving to organizations is important to the health and well-being of the community and is part of our obligation as good corporate citizens.”
Five students at three local high schools will be awarded the scholarships for Heartland Community College. There will be three $500 and two $1000 scholarships each year, leading to a total of 75 over five years.
