CHESTER and MIDLOTHIAN, Va. – Paying for college can be stressful. The John Tyler Community College (JTCC) Foundation wants to help. Each year, its scholarship program awards thousands of dollars to new and returning Tyler students. The program includes a wide variety of need- and merit-based scholarships; general and major-specific scholarships; and scholarships for students living in specific localities.
The JTCC Foundation is now accepting applications for its 2019-2020 academic year scholarships. To be considered for a scholarship, an applicant must meet the following minimum requirements:
- Be a current or prospective Tyler student who is planning to attend during the 2019-2020 academic year. High school seniors planning to start in Fall 2019 are also encouraged to apply.
- Possess a 2.5 minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA).
- Be enrolled in a certificate and/or degree program at Tyler by the first day of the Fall 2019 semester. The college’s majors may be found at www.jtcc.edu/majors.
- Have in-state tuition status.
- Have completed a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) indicating Tyler’s School Code (#004004). Visit www.FAFSA.gov for more information.
Additional information about the JTCC Foundation scholarship program, including details about the application process and a link to the online application may be found at www.jtcc.edu/scholarships.
Students applying for Study Abroad Scholarships must submit their completed application no later than March 15, 2019. For all other JTCC Foundation scholarships, completed applications are due by April 15, 2019.
Questions about scholarships and the scholarship application may be directed to Eddie Webster, scholarship program administrator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The JTCC Foundation secures resources that provide scholarships for students; fund academic programs, student support services, capital projects, and renovations to modernize classrooms and labs; and stimulate innovation within the college faculty and staff. This work ensures the college continues its pledge of providing academic excellence to students while expanding the services it offers to meet the community’s workforce requirements. Since most of the College’s graduates live and work in the area, gifts to the Foundation are an investment in both students and also the community.
John Tyler Community College offers more than 60 majors that provide pathways to careers in high-demand fields; transfer opportunities to four-year colleges and universities; and industry credentials and licensures. The college, with campuses in Chester and Midlothian, a Nursing Education Center, online classes, and off-campus classrooms, served more than 14,300 students during the 2017-18 academic year. It also assisted more than 7,000 learners through its workforce development division, Community College Workforce Alliance, a partnership between Tyler and Reynolds community colleges.
