Raise a Glass, Raise a Scholarship. 100% of the net profit from Vino Scholastico goes to support students in need. Without aid, many students would be unable to afford to pursue their education. In 2019, almost 50% of HCC students received some form of financial support. The Howard Community College Educational Foundation provides funds for scholarships, grants, and programs that benefit college students in a variety of ways. Learn more about how sponsorship dollars are allocated.
