Of course, technology and excellence in teaching do not help unless a student can actually enroll and complete the class. For many of our students cost is a barrier. In addition to funds that provide scholarships, the Foundation is able to provide other aid to students through the Forsyth Tech Fund.  Even with our affordable tuition, many enrolled students face other financial barriers to completing their education.  When an unexpected short term emergency need arises, a small grant can prevent a committed student from having to drop out.
