50th Anniversary Scholarships
In recognition of the College’s 50-year history of educating students and contributing to the local workforce, JTCC is conducting a special campaign to raise $50,000 in scholarships to support students who are close to completing their program at JTCC.
Aligned with the College’s vision to ensure a success story for every student, this special scholarship will work to ensure students complete their program at Tyler with a credential that enables them to transfer to a four-year college or pursue their chosen career path.
