At GVTC, we want to reward students who share our passion for giving back to the community by helping pay for their higher education. This year, The GVTC Foundation will be awarding students within our service area with two $20,000 university scholarships and one $5,000 vocational scholarship. That’s a total of $45,000 for higher education!
As in previous years, one senior high school student who exhibits outstanding leadership qualities and has used innovation or technology to positively impact our community will receive the $20,000 Ritchie T. Sorrells Leadership Scholarship. Another $20,000 scholarship will be awarded to a college-bound graduate exemplifying extraordinary service, volunteer work, and involvement in their local community with the Ola Armstrong Scholarship.
We understand that not everyone envisions going to a four-year university, but that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t prepare for adulthood with life skills to enhance their communities and support themselves. That’s why GVTC is also offering one vocational scholarship worth $5,000.
If you are a graduating senior in high school from a household subscribed to at least one GVTC service, you can apply to one of our three scholarships available through The GVTC Foundation. To learn more about these opportunities and to see if you qualify, click here for more details.
