June 9, 2014

The Dollar General Literacy Foundation has awarded Southeastern Illinois College ABE/GED Department a $4,000 grant to support adult literacy.

“We were thrilled to get the news that we received the grant to help our students!” said Angie Dunk, SIC’s GED/ABE Coordinator and Data Manager.  “GED testing scholarships will eliminate the financial barrier of paying for the test for those students who need it, but truly can’t afford it.”

SIC's ABE/GED Program will offer GED Testing Scholarships to students who meet specific eligibility requirements and qualifications.

Scholarships will be given to students with the highest need, determined by the scholarship application including employment status, monthly income, number of dependents, and statement of need or essay. 

SIC offers free GED classes  year-round.  To learn more about scholarships or to enroll in classes, call 618-252-5400 x2242.
