Established in 1992, the CTC Foundation offers approximately 170 need- and merit-based scholarships which provide almost 150 awards to competitively selected students every year. It has enabled CTC to grow through the acquisitions of gifts of scholarships, equipment and other donations to benefit students. The Foundation now offers nearly 160 endowed scholarships and has a $6.7 million endowment. In the past 10 years, the CTC Foundation has awarded more than $1.2 million in scholarships. Last year, more than $577,000 in scholarships funds was awarded to 245 CTC students worldwide.

To help students apply for CTC Foundation or other scholarships, the CTC library will host a virtual scholarship workshop live on facebook.com/CentralTexasCollege, Monday, February 1 at 12 p.m. The workshop will provide tips on creating successful essays and how to navigate the application process.
