Scholarships & Grants

Student Scholarships:

The South Georgia Technical College Foundation provides a number of scholarship opportunities and grants to students attending South Georgia Technical College. The majority of the scholarships available are for existing students who have attended SGTC for at least one semester.

Most scholarships are based on the previous semester’s President’s List. Full-time students named to the President’s List for having achieved a 4.0 (or all A’s) the previous semester are notified through the mail that they have been selected to apply for a Foundation Scholarship.

Criteria such as home campus, academic program, number of times on the President’s List, scores on admissions tests, and participation in extracurricular activities as well as financial aid are used to determine scholarship eligibility utilizing a points system devised for scholarships from individuals on the President’s List who submit scholarship applications.

Many of the scholarships are program specific and not all scholarships are available every semester.
