You must have applied and have been accepted to Aiken Technical College. You must also use your @atc.edu email assigned to you in order to log in and create a scholarship account.
Private Foundation Scholarships and Awards
Aiken Technical College Foundation has a limited number of private scholarships. During the selection of recipients, emphasis is placed upon scholastic achievement, character, future promise and financial need. Aiken Technical College Scholarships are generally designed to “dove tail” with federal and/or state assistance. Therefore all applicants must complete the F.A.F.S.A. form. The philosophy of packaging these awards at ATC is to assist the largest number of students, by supplementing federal and state assistance with these scholarships. We feel that this enables the most number of students meeting the entire cost of tuition and fees at the college. Additional scholarships will be established as interested groups and individual's desire. Scholarships are awarded for an academic year which is the fall and spring semesters. Scholarships are not available for the summer semester except for the Vernon R. Ford Incentive and the Thomas Truitt Memorial Expanded Duty Dental Assisting Scholarship.
Minimum Scholarship Eligibility
The following minimum criteria are required; unless otherwise stipulated by the donor:
- 2.5 grade point average (GPA)
- Enrolled at least part-time (6 credit hours)
- Apply for federal financial aid (FAFSA)
*Exceptions may be granted by the ATC Foundation Director if in agreement with the donor's gift intent.
