Workforce Pathways Scholarship

 

Trident Technical College (TTC) Division of Continuing Education and Economic Development is pleased to offer a new session of the Workforce Pathways Scholarship for Summer and Fall 2019 continuing education classes (until funds are expended). This is a new, separate opportunity from the WPS funds that are also available 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 latest installment of the Workforce Pathways Scholarship is open for applications beginning July 15, 2019. See below for instructions on how to apply.
