Delgado Scholarship Fund Supports Student Advancement in Core Industries

NEW ORLEANS – From Delgado Community College:

Delgado’s alumni, business, and community partners are aligning to increase scholarship opportunities for Delgado students through the Building Futures Scholarship fund.

Established in 2020 by Todd Trosclair — a Delgado alumnus, local businessman and board member of the Delgado Community College Foundation — the Building Futures Scholarship offers financial assistance to eligible students enrolled in allied health, construction management, culinary arts, motor vehicle technology and nursing programs who demonstrate a financial need.

Delgado has awarded approximately $163,767 in Building Futures scholarships to date, and 19 currently enrolled Delgado students are among those who have benefited from the fund.

To leverage the scholarship’s purpose and impact, the Foundation will host the annual Building Futures Scholarship Luncheon from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 18 at Galerie de Galatoire, 211 Royal Street. GNO Inc. President and CEO Michael Hecht will serve as the luncheon’s featured speaker.  

“Delgado remains innovative in creating solutions that support students along their academic journey,” said Delgado Chancellor Dr. Larissa Littleton-Steib. “The Building Futures scholarship exemplifies our ongoing commitment to ensure matriculating students remain on course to graduate and transition into the workforce or continued learning.”
