ATC Foundation Awards Scholarships to Recent High School Graduates

(June 22, 2016, Aiken, SC) Aiken Technical College Foundation recently awarded area high school graduates with more than $94,000 in scholarships for the 2016-17 school year.
  
“I’ve met with so many high school students who financially cannot afford the cost of tuition and books,” said Mary Commons, ATC Foundation Director. “Due to the overwhelming support of businesses and individuals who have contributed to scholarships, we are able to help many attend college. These students are so appreciative of the scholarships and now they can concentrate on their academics instead of finances.”
  
This year, the Foundation implemented a new online application and review process. Applicants were able to see a list of scholarships they would be considered for upon submitting the application.
  
More than 350 applications were received from graduating high school seniors this year.
  
“Our new online scholarship system is a tremendous help to the staff at Aiken Technical College and it makes it much easier for students to apply for scholarships,” said Commons. “The process takes about 15 minutes to complete and when a student is able to see what scholarships they may qualify for immediately, their face lights up with a sense of accomplishment.”
  
Recipients were acknowledged at their respective high school’s awards ceremonies. To activate the scholarship, the recipient must enroll at ATC during the 2016-17 school year.
