The Delgado Community College Alumni Association has donated $30,000 as the private match for an endowed scholarship fund for first-generation students at Delgado. This private match will be used to apply for a $20,000 public match from the Louisiana Board of Regents Support Fund, which has a specific scholarship matching program for endowed scholarships for first-generation students. This is the second time the Delgado Alumni Association has made a contribution for this purpose. Thus, the total endowment will be $50,000 and will be named the Delgado Alumni Association First-Generation Student Scholarship II.
