About Foundation Scholarships

Scholarships, administered through a partnership between North Georgia Technical College and the NGTC Foundation, are awarded throughout the academic year. Applications are available online and must be submitted by the published deadline each semester. Students will be required to meet eligibility requirements and selection criteria as established by each individual scholarship.

The Foundation Scholarship Committee will determine eligibility and will award scholarships based on the availability of funds. Completion of the application does not guarantee a scholarship award. Foundation scholarships are funded by gifts made to the NGTC Foundation from individual donors and private businesses. For this reason, funds may not always be available for scholarships from the Foundation.

Scholarship Application Information

Applicants should read all instructions carefully before completing the application. Applications submitted without all required information and/or attachments are considered incomplete and will not be considered for the scholarship award. Applications will not be accepted after the deadline.
