The Charles City Area Scholarship Fund provides scholarships to students attending North Iowa Area Community College either on the main campus or at the NIACC Charles City Center. The scholarships are awarded to applicants at least 18 years old, living in Floyd County and/or within a 20-mile radius of Charles City, and enrolled part-time (up to 11 semester hours of college credit).
Over 100 local students have benefited from this scholarship fund, which is made possible through the support and generosity of local businesses and community members.
