Would you like help paying for college? Then consider applying for a John Tyler Community College Foundation scholarship. Each year, the Foundation awards scholarships to new and continuing Tyler students. Some scholarship are general, while others are for specific majors; for students who live in a particular city or county; or for students with financial need.

Nearly 200 students received scholarships through the program for the current academic year. Would you like to see yourself on the scholarship recipient list in 2018-2019?

  • Have a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or better on a 4.0 scale.
  • Must be enrolled in an eligible certificate and/or degree program. 
  • Must be Virginia residents and have in-state tuition status.

To apply for a JTCC Foundation Scholarship, you must:

  • Complete the online application, which requires information about your academics, leadership and service to others.
