Press Release

Atlanta Technical College Foundation provides more than $11,500 in aid to metro Atlanta students for the fall term


The Board of Trustees of the Atlanta Technical College Foundation is pleased to announce that the Foundation awarded more than $11,500 in scholarships to students enrolled for the fall 2012 semester. The scholarships are made possible by generous donations by businesses, concerned citizens and Atlanta Technical College employees. Revenue generated from the annual Bridge Builders awards banquet is also used to fund student and faculty endowments.

While a number of the scholarships awarded are based on financial need, educational achievement is also a critical qualifier. Applicants must have a minimum GPA of 3.0 to be eligible for an award. Assistance is available for students in a wide variety of majors including practical nursing, early childhood education, firefighting, marketing, hotel management, graphic design, database administration, carpentry, heating and air conditioning repair, health information technology, aircraft maintenance and dental assisting.

The Atlanta Technical College Scholarship Program is an excellent opportunity for businesses, community organizations and individuals to have a positive and lasting impact on the economic vitality of Atlanta by helping a deserving student reach his or her educational and career goals. Companies can fund a scholarship specifically for students enrolled in the program area that reflects their industry, or they can award scholarships based on financial need or overall academic merit. Corporate leaders can contribute to the selection process of the scholarship recipient, or Atlanta Technical College can manage the entire process. Awards can be granted once per year, or once per semester. Every dollar designated for a scholarship is applied to the winning students’ education.For information on the Atlanta Technical College Foundation Scholarship Program, contact Elizabeth King at 404-225-4648 or eking@atlantatech.edu.
