The WTC Foundation is proud to assist students in their pursuit of an education and hope of a better life by providing a multitude of scholarship opportunities. We are honored by the individuals, families and businesses who have donated funds to establish these scholarships in memory or honor of a loved one, an event or milestones of a love one's life. In our 40 plus year history, hundreds of students have benefited from these gifts and will continue to do so into the future.

 

FOR DONORS

WTC Foundation offers two types of scholarships:

Endowed Scholarship:  An endowed scholarship provides an ongoing source of financial assistance to WTC students. The corpus of the scholarship fund is held in perpetuity and invested. Once the accrued interest reaches awardable size, then the interest from the investment is awarded each year to qualified student(s). For more information on endowed scholarships, click here.

See full list of Endowed Scholarships here

Designated Scholarship: Is established with any amount the donor wishes to give. This scholarship can be renewed each year at the donor’s discretion. The donor assists in creating the criteria for the scholarship and may choose the recipient. (Please note, if the donor selects the scholarship recipient, your gift is not tax-deductible).
