DENMARK, SC – Denmark Technical College President Dr. Willie L. Todd Jr. announced on Friday that 500 students would be awarded the new Denmark Technical College Tuition Assistance scholarship for the fall 2021 semester. The tuition assistance is available to the first 500 students who apply and are enrolled for Fall 2021.
“We are ecstatic to have the opportunity to offer this scholarship to our students. This tuition assistance will provide access to education to students who, for many, have been deeply impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and who otherwise may have had to forgo pursuing their educational and career goals,” said Todd.
The program is open to full-time and part-time students as well as in-state and out-of-state residents. Denmark Tech leadership has decided to use funds to alleviate the gap that exists between the cost of tuition and student funding. The tuition assistance is available to both current and incoming students.
Students interested in the tuition assistance scholarship must complete the FAFSA federal financial aid application. Once admission has been confirmed and students are enrolled, their bills will reflect a tuition assistance credit if they are one of the first 500 students to enroll. As a last dollar scholarship, the credit will be for the remaining amount of tuition due after other grants and scholarships have been applied. Students will not have to use awarded loans in front of the tuition assistance scholarship.
“Our mission is to engage, educate, and empower students. We’re giving students the opportunity to set new goals and realize their potential to make an impact on the communities we serve despite the financial challenges that surround them. It is a powerful prospect,” added Todd.
