Foundation Scholarships

The Southern Crescent Technical College Foundation, Inc. offers scholarship opportunities to students that have completed their annual FAFSA application.  For more information on the FAFSA, please visit the Financial Aid FAFSA page.

Please read all application materials carefully – some restrictions apply. Foundation scholarships are reviewed by a panel of faculty and staff and awarded to a currently enrolled part-time or full-time SCTC student.

  • Please provide an explanation of your financial need for the scholarship when you fill out the application. If awarded a scholarship, a photograph with a note of gratitude is required from the recipient.
