SRTC Foundation awards more than $42K in scholarships for spring semester
For Spring Semester 2018, which began on January 8th, the Southern Regional Technical College (SRTC) Foundation awarded 69 scholarships totaling over $42,000 to SRTC students. These funds assist students with education related costs such as tuition, fees, clinical scrubs, dissection kits, books, and much more.
SRTC is consolidating with Bainbridge State College and Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College this year.
“The SRTC Foundation is proud to offer so many scholarships each semester. Scholarships provide financial support to students who need assistance with tuition, books, and other fees. By offering more scholarships for students, the Foundation and the College hope to improve the job skills, technical training, and educational level of the citizens of the community. These funds are only made available because of the generosity of our donors. We sincerely thank and appreciate each of you. Without you, many of our students would not be able to afford books, tuition, or program related supplies,” commented Amy Maison, Vice President of Institutional Advancement, Marketing and Public Relations.

The SRTC Foundation is a non-profit corporation whose mission is to promote the cause of higher education and expand educational opportunities to the students of SRTC. The Foundation strives to create scholarships and endowments and assist in the financing of capital improvements and other college-related expenses. A few of the scholarships offered and awarded this semester were:
The Non-Traditional Scholarship was established to encourage enrollment in and completion of a technical certificate of credit, diploma, or degree in a field typically considered gender-specific. Non-traditional occupations are careers in which less than 25 percent of a gender is represented in the workforce. These careers often pay higher salaries, include challenging work, offer opportunities to develop new skills, and possess the possibility of advancement potential.
The county-specific scholarships were designed to help students from SRTC’s seven county service delivery area, consisting of Colquitt, Grady, Mitchell, Thomas, Tift, Turner and Worth counties.
