Simpson University offering scholarships to qualifying people impacted by Carr, Camp Fires


    If you have been affected by the Carr and Camp Fires, and you think you can't afford a college education, Simpson University would like to help.

    They're calling it "Redding's Hometown University," and the new president there, Dr. Norman Hall, is reaching out to Carr and Camp Fire victims.

    Hall said with the right fit, you or your child can attend full-time for only a few thousand dollars a year.

    "If they have minimum qualifications they can get up to $15,000 right from the word go," said Hall. "And then if they have a sponsor, we'll match up to another $3,000. And then if they qualify for Cal or Pell Grants, that would qualify them for another $15,000. And that's literally just a couple thousand dollars away from our full tuition room and board."

    Hall says it could end up costing $4,000-$5,000 a year out of pocket.
