Our Opportunities

Welcome to Guilford Technical Community College Foundation Scholarship Homepage. We are currently open for the 2021-2022 academic year!

Below you will find a listing of scholarships available to students with brief information about the scholarship qualifications. To apply you must first sign in with Titan user name and password. You will then have the opportunity to complete a general application and, if applicable, apply for specific scholarships.

Applications received by March 15th will receive priority consideration.

You will be required to submit short essay responses that will be scored by our Scholarships Committee. There is no minimum word requirement but in order to earn a high score you will want to write responses that stand out. For example, you are encouraged to share any personal circumstances that you believe make your responses interesting or unique.

You can save the application at any time and return to it later.
