TALLADEGA COLLEGE FRESHMAN EARNS UPS SCHOLARSHIP


Talladega, Alabama-- Tony Jones, Jr., a freshman attending Talladega College, has been selected to receive a $2,400.00 UPS Scholarship provided through the American Association of Independent Colleges and Schools for the State of Alabama.

Tony is the son of Ms. Angela Collins of Greensboro, Alabama and Mr. Tony Jones, Sr. of Marion, Alabama. He is a 2012 honor graduate of Greensboro High School. Tony is majoring in Computer Science and was recently elected to serve as Freshman Class Secretary for the Student Government Association. Talladega College is a liberal arts institution that currently has over 1,000 students enrolled.

The Alabama American Association of Independent Colleges and Schools is a statewide association for private colleges and universities which is affiliated with the Council of Independent Colleges (CIC). At the national level, CIC teamed up with the United Postal Service (UPS) Foundation to distribute funding of the UPS Scholarship. This year, CIC awarded nearly $1.5 million in scholarships from its UPS Educational Endowment Fund to private institutions of higher learning across the nation. These scholarships are awarded on the basis of the students’ academic achievement and financial need.

“In 2011, The UPS Foundation and UPS employees directed $93.5 million in philanthropy and in-kind services, including more than 1.6 million hours of volunteer service, to the local communities in which we operate,” said Eduardo Martinez, president of The UPS Foundation. “UPS is proud to continue that spirit of giving by partnering with CIC to support thousands of students working to become the leaders of tomorrow by obtaining an education from our nation’s private colleges.”

The UPS Scholarships are funded by the CIC-UPS Educational Endowment Fund, which is held and administered by CIC. Since its inception, this Fund has generated nearly $49 million in scholarship aid to support more than 17,000 students.

“Through this national scholarship program, CIC and UPS are delighted to make it possible for 609 deserving young men and women to attend the private college or university of their choice,” said Richard Ekman, president of CIC. “By directly assisting students with significant financial need, CIC and UPS are helping a new generation of students achieve their dreams of a college education.”
