Five Roane State Community College students received scholarships through the Oak Ridge Institute for Continued Learning, or ORICL.
Roane State and ORICL have a partnership that spans two decades. Established in 1997, ORICL offers dozens of enrichment courses for its members in classrooms provided at Roane Stateâ€™s Oak Ridge campus.
In addition, ORICL has established multiple scholarships supported by its members.
- The John Million Scholarship, supported by a $5,000 annual donation by ORICL members.
- The ORICL Scholarship Endowment, established in 2002 in celebration of ORICLâ€™s fifth anniversary.
- The Bob Jones Memorial Scholarship, established through memorial donations received by the Roane State Foundation in honor of the longtime ORICL member Bob Jones, who passed away in 2012.
