Alumni Network Launches Scholarship Fund
The Austin Community College Alumni Network Advisory Council committed $15,000 to establish a scholarship to benefit ACC students.  This marks the first time the college’s Alumni Network has provided funds for a scholarship.  
Special member discount from Nationwide
Austin Community College alumni and former students can obtain discounts on auto and home insurance and raise funds to support students through a new program offered through the ACC Alumni Network.

When alumni purchase Nationwide products and services, a portion of proceeds will help fund an Alumni Network scholarship and develop space for Student Life activities at Highland Campus.

“We’re excited to have Nationwide as a corporate partner,” says ACC Alumni Director Mary Ann Cicala. “Alumni and former students not only will be able to take advantage of discounted rates, they’ll also benefit many deserving ACC students.”

To learn more, contact a Nationwide agent or call 1-888-231-4870. Information also is on the Nationwide/ACC Alumni Network webpage.
