Each scholarship has eligibility requirements based on the donor’s criteria. Applicants will request a letter of recommendation from an instructor (current students), supervisor, or high school counselor (incoming/new students) within the online application. Financial need is determined using numbers from the FAFSA. Note: You can receive a scholarship through the Chattahoochee Tech Foundation even if you do not qualify for aid through the FAFSA. Scholarships are not transferable to other colleges and can only be applied to tuition, fees, books, and qualified educational expenses as defined by the IRS. Scholarships awarded through the Chattahoochee Tech Foundation are applied to a student’s account beginning Summer Term.

The application for 2019-2020 scholarships opens January 2, 2019, and closes February 22, 2019. Scholarships will be awarded on March 22, 2019. Applicants who receive a scholarship are required to attend the Scholarship Awards Luncheon on April 12, 2019, at the North Metro campus.
