Foundation Scholarships

The 2015-2016 scholarship application period has ended.  Applications for 2016-2017 scholarships will be posted in January 2016. 

John Tyler Community College Foundation scholarships are funded by the generous gifts of donors. The John Tyler Foundation is an equal-opportunity/affirmative action organization. The Foundation does not coordinate private scholarships, and all information contained on this page refers to John Tyler Foundation scholarships only.

Application Deadlines
  • John Tyler International Studies Scholarship for summer study abroad is due March 15.
  • John Tyler Foundation Scholarship application deadline has been extended to April 30.
