ACWORTH, GA (April 23, 2024) – The Chattahoochee Tech Foundation awarded student scholarships with a total value of $86,000 at an awards reception held Friday, April 19, at the college’s North Metro Campus.

“We greatly appreciate the generosity of our scholarship donors in helping to make college education an affordable reality for our students,” said Jennifer Nelson, the Chattahoochee Tech Vice President of Advancement and Executive Director for the Chattahoochee Tech Foundation. “These scholarships make a real difference in the lives of our students.”

“When faced with increasing expenses or a sudden economic hardship, students are often forced to decide between continuing to invest in their education or devoting those funds to family needs or the general cost of living,” said Nelson. “These scholarships will help students reach the goal of graduation and enter community workforce.”

Students receiving scholarships represent a wide variety of programs at the college, with scholarships ranging in value from $500 to $2,500. The college’s Board of Trustees evaluated the applicants and then the top applicants were matched with the appropriate scholarship. In addition to meeting specific criteria for certain scholarships, these students also must meet specified GPA requirements, demonstrate financial need, and be enrolled in a certain number of credit hours.

The Chattahoochee Tech Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization designed to provide financial support for the Chattahoochee Technical College, its students and programs.
