Local resident receives book industry foundation scholarship
Submitted By Alison Foreman
The Binc Foundation announced August 29, 2012 the recipients of their 2012 Academic Scholarship Program; 35 students, either former Borders employees or their dependents, received scholarship funding for their continuing education. Among the recipients chosen from a pool of 93 applicants is Daniel Correia of Hayward who attends the Academy of Art in San Francisco, majoring in Landscape Architecture.
The original vision for the scholarship program was to assist Borders associates and their families but the scope of support for the Binc Foundation has now changed. "We are thrilled to be able to continue to support booksellers," Binc Foundation Executive Director Pam French said. "Congratulations to all of the scholarship winners. The scholarship program will continue in 2013 but will expand to booksellers in all retail book shops."
Information about how booksellers can apply for the 2013 Scholarship Program will be released in spring 2013. Stay tuned to www.bincfoundation.org for more details.
