Workforce Pathways Scholarship

 

**NOTE: Due to Hurricane Florence, the application period and orientation sessions for this scholarship will not begin until Tuesday, Sept. 18, 2018. 

 

Trident Technical College (TTC) Division of Continuing Education and Economic Development is pleased to offer a new session of the Workforce Pathways Scholarship for Fall 2018 continuing education classes (until funds are expended). This is a new, separate opportunity from the WPS funds that are also available currently to pay for academic courses at Trident Technical College this year.

The Workforce Pathways Scholarship was funded by the South Carolina General Assembly through the South Carolina Technical College System. Trident Technical College has a limited amount of funding available to provide scholarships to students who are current residents of South Carolina. The scholarship money can be used by students to pay for class tuition only (does not include textbooks, testing fees, materials, etc.). It is only available for use on qualified TTC continuing education courses within approved programs.

The new installment of the Workforce Pathways Scholarship is open for applications Sept. 18-27, 2018. See below for instructions on how to apply.
