New Program Aims to Promote Workforce Development

Scholarships Designated to Cover Tuition, Required Fees for SC Residents

South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster announced on November 3 that he is designating $17 million from the Governor's Emergency Education Relief Fund for a new Workforce Scholarships for the Future program.

The program will cover the tuition, and required fees for South Carolina residents enrolled in the state's 16 technical colleges in a major for a high-demand field. Such programs include computer science and information technology, construction, criminal justice, distribution and logistics, early childhood education, healthcare, human services, manufacturing, nuclear, and transportation.

The funding is also available to cover the tuition and required fees for qualifying continuing education courses.

"The Workforce Scholarships for the Future provides South Carolina residents with an opportunity to prepare to go to work or advance their new career in high-demand, high-paying career fields," said Aiken Technical College President Dr. Forest E. Mahan. "This new scholarship further increases access to higher education and helps put career goals, stability, and success within reach for thousands."

The program will begin in January 2022 and continue until all funds have been used. This funding will be applied to eligible students' account balances for any tuition or required fee costs that remain after all other forms of financial aid, grants, and scholarships have been applied.

Current and new students registering for the spring 2022 semester will be the first to benefit from this new program, said Mahan.

ATC is accepting applications and registering students now for the spring semester, which starts January 10. To apply or learn more about enrolling, visit www.atc.edu.

More information about the Workforce Scholarships for the Future program can be found at www.atc.edu/workforcescholarships.
