Defining the Need

The cost of attending Greenville Technical College, including tuition, books, and supplies, comes to about $4,000 per year for a full-time student. For many of our students, scholarships make the difference in furthering their formal education.

At the Foundation, we offer over 200 scholarships ranging from major specific to state specific. Unfortunately, state assistance has fallen from 62% to 16% of the college’s operating budget which has increased the price of tuition. The existing scholarship funds through the Foundation are limited and just two percent of students receive them.

When you invest in the Foundation, you invest in students and our community. Highly educated people earn more annually which bolsters our economic development and leads to a higher per capita income for the Upstate. Together, we’re funding the next generation.
