Student Support

Funds raised by the TTC Foundation are used to support students.

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.  

Kids' Camp Fund

The Kids Camp Fund provides financial assistance to children ages 7-16 with financial needs who wish to attend Kids' College summer programs offered by the Division of Continuing Education and Economic Development.

CIC Student Competition Team Fund

The CIC Student Competition Team Fund assists the Culinary Institute of Charleston's student competition team with expenses related to travel, lodging and registration for competitions.

Steinberg Book Fund

The Steinberg Book Fund (formerly Steinberg High School Lending Library) was created in 2006 to build a lending library for the qualified high school students participating in the TTC Dual Credit Program. The fund was named in honor of Samuel Steinberg upon his retirement as chair of the TTC Foundation Board of Trustees.

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.
