Many scholarship recipients are first-time college students, re-entry adults, career changers or single parents striving to complete their educational goals. For these students, a scholarship award can make a profound difference in the continued success of their college program or career.
To support scholarships at Chattahoochee Tech, donors can:
- Contribute any amount to the general Scholarship Fund. Every dollar makes a difference.
- Establish an annual scholarship. With an annual gift of $1,000 or more, donors may name a scholarship and recommend criteria for awarding.
- Contribute to an existing scholarship. Chattahoochee Tech Foundation has several existing scholarships that can make an even greater impact with additional funding.
- Create an endowed scholarship. By creating an endowment, donors establish a scholarship that will provide financial assistance for Chattahoochee Tech students in perpetuity through the interest earned from the investment of the fund. With a minimum gift of $25,000, donors can name the fund and recommend criteria for awarding.
Areas of Need:
Chattahoochee Tech always accepts donations for all current scholarships and any new scholarships based on donor-directed criteria and fund use. Often, new scholarship initiatives are created to support students based on demographic information and specific needs. Currently, these special scholarship initiatives include:
- Veterans’ Scholarships
- College Credit Now/Dual Enrollment Scholarships
Here’s an example of how our scholarships have impacted our students’ lives (click the picture below):
Gifts in Kind
The educational programs at Chattahoochee Tech are designed to provide students with real-world, hands-on experiences in the classroom. In many cases, this experience requires equipment for students to work with to fully understand the concepts and material. Chattahoochee Tech accepts donations of gifts-in-kind (tangible items) that allow our students to practice and learn on equipment they will use on a daily basis in their future careers.
Programs currently in need of material donations include:
- Welding and Joining Technology
- Automotive Collision Repair
Although all contributions are appreciated, because of many factors, Chattahoochee Tech Foundation may not be able to accept all donations of tangible items. Please contact the Foundation if you are interested in supporting Chattahoochee Tech with a gift-in-kind for more information.
Chattahoochee Tech Family Annual Scholarship
Each year, Chattahoochee Tech faculty and staff are asked to support the mission of the College through financial contributions. Although these donations can be designated to specific program areas, faculty and staff are encouraged to contribute to the Chattahoochee Tech Family Annual Scholarship. All donations to this scholarship are awarded to qualifying students on an annual basis for Spring and Summer semesters. Faculty and staff are asked to nominate deserving students with financial need who represent the values and principals of Chattahoochee Tech through academic achievements, community involvement, and school spirit.
