The Piedmont Technical College Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit corporation that provides financial support to the college beyond that which is obtained from traditional funding sources. The Foundation attracts support from alumni and friends, business and industry and grant-making organizations. It also raises money through annual giving plans, gift campaigns, special events and estate planning tools and techniques.

Piedmont Technical College Foundation Scholarships

Many of the students entering Piedmont Technical College are from low to moderate income households. Many are the first to attend college in their families. Some come from challenging circumstances — juggling family, jobs and college responsibilities.

Although more than 90 percent of the students at PTC receive some form of financial aid, for many it’s not enough. The PTC Foundation assists these students through more than 90 scholarship opportunities and book assistance funds. These scholarships and funds help to retain the best and brightest talent for our local workforce and provide educational opportunities to those who otherwise may not have been able to attend college.

The PTC Foundation Board would like to thank its generous donors for making these scholarships available, and for making the dreams of many of our students a possibility.
