Reception for potential Hiram College students to take place in Midland November 26

November 20th, 2018

On Monday, November 26th, the Midland Area Community Foundation and Hiram College will host an informational reception for prospective students, parents, educators and youth advocates. The free event will be from 4:30 to 6:00 PM at MACF offices, 76 Ashman Circle in Midland.

The purpose of the event is to inform students of not only opportunities at Hiram College, but a scholarship opportunity available only to Midland County students. The Esther S. Gerstacker Hiram College Scholarship is available only to students from Midland County attending Hiram College, Esther’s alma mater. The scholarship is administered by MACF and students may apply annually and receive the scholarship for 4 years. Depending on the student’s Free Application for Student Aid results, the scholarship has the potential to fully cover the cost of a Hiram College education.

“This is an exceptional scholarship opportunity to attend a fine small college,” stated John Zimmerman, chair of the Gerstacker Scholarship selection committee. “We would like to establish a Midland County pipeline and send one or more new students every year.”

Hiram College President Lori E. Varlotta and Admissions counselors will be available on November 26 to discuss educational opportunities at Hiram. Offering 29 majors and 36 minors, Hiram provides a robust new liberal arts education in a small classroom setting. The result is an extremely personalized education experience.

Hiram College also offers students the opportunity to compete in Division III sports while earning a prestigious liberal arts degree. There is a full range of varsity sports for Men and Women, competing in the North Coast Athletic Conference.

Hiram College is located in Northeast Ohio, about a 5 hour drive from Midland. For more information, visit the Hiram College website
