Students enrolled in critical workforce programs at the Technical College of the Lowcountry can now tap into the new SC WINS Scholarship.
The Workforce and Industry Needs Scholarship is state funded and designed to boost the number of technical college graduates in “critical” fields and from low-income backgrounds.
“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 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, fees and books. It awards $50 per credit hour on top of the $95 per credit hour LTA award, which together cover more than 75 percent of TCL’s tuition. With other financial aid, many students will be able to attend TCL tuition-free. There is also 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.
