With gratitude for The Hormel Foundation, I’m pleased to announce that Riverland Community College has been awarded the following grants for 2021 totaling $441,000.

  • Center for Ag and Food Science Technology
  • Be Your Best
  • College Park Housing Unit Improvements
  • CRM - Student Management Software

In addition to these grants, Riverland students receive generous support through The Hormel Foundation Austin Assurance Scholarship program as well.  This semester we have 234 Austin and Pacelli high school graduates from the classes of 2019 and 2020 enrolled here at Riverland.  This scholarship has a significant impact on our FYE and the success of these students.

"The Hormel Foundation's generous support plays an important role in our community and Riverland Community College is a grateful recipient and partner," said Dr. Adenuga Atewologun, Riverland president. "Many thanks to all who contributed to submitting these grant requests and for the project work that will impact our students."
