Workforce Pathways Scholarship

Trident Technical College College Center building

Workforce Pathways Scholarship

(UPDATE AS OF 5/28/2020): We are no longer accepting applications for the 2019/20 Workforce Pathways Scholarship. 

 

Trident Technical College (TTC) Division of Continuing Education and Economic Development is still offering the Workforce Pathways Scholarship for 2020 continuing education classes (until funds are expended). This is a separate opportunity from the WPS funds that are also available to pay for academic courses at Trident Technical College.

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.

 

For more information on WPS funds for TTC continuing education courses, email ce.reg@tridenttech.edu.
