Bank of America grant to help Aiken Tech students complete college education

Bank of America has awarded the Aiken Technical College Foundation an economic mobility grant to help students achieve success by removing financial barriers to completing their college education.

The $9,400 grant will go toward the ATC Foundation’s Student Completion Microgrants Program. The microgrants are provided to eligible students who have completed at least 75 percent of their program of study, but are at risk of not completing for financial reasons, said ATC Foundation Director Beth LaClair, Ph.D.

“This program helps students cross the finish line as they may have financial barriers preventing them from finishing. The grant from Bank of America will aid students in completing their degree, diploma, or certificate, and ensuring that they can enter the workforce in the CSRA,” said LaClair.

Microgrant recipients are further supported by receiving free holistic student support services such as tutoring, student coaching, counseling, and career services.

“Partnering with Aiken Technical College Foundation to invest in the Student Completion Microgrants program, which helps prepare young adults for long-term success, is part of our approach to fostering economic mobility and equitable progress,” said Ora Parish, president, Bank of America Greater Augusta / Aiken. “These investments demonstrate how we are taking action to provide our community the essential resources and support needed to help people succeed in today’s and tomorrow’s economy.”

Those interested in learning more about the Student Completion Microgrants Program and ways to support Aiken Tech students should contact the ATC Foundation at atcfoundation@atc.edu or visit www.atc.edu/foundation/.
