The TTC Foundation manages 145 scholarship funds, providing more than $420,000 in assistance to TTC students every year.

Student Equipment Funds

Student equipment funds are used to assist students with the cost of required program-related tools, uniforms and equipment, which can cost up to $7,000 for a two-year degree. Student equipment funds currently exist in the program areas of Culinary, Automotive, Cosmetology, Welding and Nursing.

The Student Urgent Needs Fund

The TTC Foundation Student Urgent Needs Fund assists students who have an unforeseen financial emergency which would otherwise prevent them from continuing to attend TTC. These funds are not to be a consistent supplement to a student's education funding sources or to sustain students between financial aid refund checks and must be urgent in nature.  

Clemente Fund

The Charleston Clemente Courses are free college-level humanities courses that are offered to disadvantaged people in the Charleston area, in the hope that a study of classic literature, philosophy, art and history can offer a way out of poverty through intellectual freedom. The Clemente Fund provides meals, instructional supplies and materials for the program.
