Students enrolled in critical workforce programs at the Technical College of the Lowcountry can attend TCL tuition free this fall thanks to the SC WINS Scholarship
“This is a win-win for students and for the community,” TCL President Dr. Richard Gough said. “The scholarship encourages enrollment in the workforce areas that need it most, ensuring a stronger pipeline of well-trained workers for employers in the Lowcountry.”
The South Carolina Workforce and Industry Needs Scholarship is a state funded program designed to boost the number of technical college graduates in “critical” fields in addition to students from low-income backgrounds.
The state’s critical workforce areas include healthcare, computer and information technology, advanced manufacturing, construction, hospitality and tourism, and transportation. Specific TCL programs include computer technology, avionics, culinary arts, building construction, HVAC, medical assisting and many more. Click here to see a list of eligible programs.
The SC WINS scholarship supplements Lottery Tuition Assistance and other financial aid to help cover tuition and fees. Students may also be eligible for a book allowance of up to $300 per year.
In addition to those pursuing a degree in a critical workforce area, SC WINS will be available to any student who meets income eligibility guidelines for free and reduced lunch. Plus, the scholarship is available to qualified high school students who take college courses through TCL’s dual enrollment program.
