If you already know about ESP, please download a pledge form. Otherwise, we hope you will take a moment to familiarize yourself with the ESP. For as little as the cost of a soda or coffee, you can help the ESP continue to make great things happen!
The ESP began in 1995 and is funded by St. Charles Community College employees who believe in spreading compassion and good will to students, co-workers and community.
Thanks to the generosity of employees, the ESP is able to fund:
The 2012 ESP Committee awarded 15 Scholarships totaling $7,500.
Recipients are chosen by the ESP Committee from applications received. The number of recipients varies depending on funds available. The ESP renews the scholarships for one semester if the criteria are met.
This year's campus enhancement project was the purchase of three additional concrete planter/seating units for the Fine Arts Building courtyard.
