Without scholarships, many people simply do not have the financial resources to pursue higher education. Scholarships through the Forsyth Tech Foundation help ensure that financial barriers do not stand in the way of our students’ educational success.

General Scholarship gifts allow the Foundation to make awards wherever the needs are greatest. If sending a check, please make it payable to The Forsyth Tech Foundation, and let us know that your gift is for general scholarship support. If giving online, you can designate this with a note in the comment box.

Endowed Scholarships can be established with a minimum commitment of $25,000, and may be given in installments over a five-year period. These funds can be for general scholarship assistance, or support students in a particular area of study. Once fully endowed, income from the endowment provides scholarship funds.

Annual (Non-Endowed) Scholarships can be established with a minimum gift of $1,000 annually. These funds are awarded on a yearly basis and continue only as long as the donor provides annual gifts to sustain them. The impact of annual scholarships is immediate, meaning the funds are disbursed to the student in the fiscal year they are received.
