Foundation Scholarship Program Application

Through the generosity of donors, the Piedmont Technical College Foundation offers a variety of scholarships. Foundation Scholarships are available to current students who have completed 12 PTC credit hours in their major and have earned at least a 2.5 GPA (Grade Point Average). Previous Foundation Scholarship recipients may only receive one scholarship per year, and total awards are capped at $2,000.

Please remember that only only application per student is permitted.


Will this affect my Federal or State Aid eligibility?

This does NOT affect your eligibility for Federal or State Aid received via the financial aid office and the FAFSA (i.e. Pell Grant, Student Loan, Needs-Based, etc.). Foundation Scholarships are typically awarded prior to State and local aid.

What you will need

  • Hours completed (Check DegreeWorks)
  • Cumulative GPA (Check DegreeWorks)
  • Expected graduation date
  • You will be asked to complete a personal statement, a statement of financial need, and a list of school/community activities in this application
  • Name of a PTC instructor for your recommendation (Please check with the instructor to ensure he or she is willing to complete the recommendation).
