By making a gift for scholarships, you can help someone achieve the dream of a college education.

Tyler's graduates are the college's most important contribution to the future, and Tyler has a deep commitment to helping all students succeed regardless of their financial circumstances.

Scholarships also help Tyler attract top-achieving students, raising the college's academic profile and creating a vibrant learning environment that benefits everyone.

Setting Up a Scholarship

You can establish a Foundation Scholarship in your name or in honor of someone important to you and choose the criteria for recipients, such as students with a particular major, residents of a certain area, first-generation students, and financial need and/or merit requirements. The minimum gift depends on whether you want to create an endowed scholarship, which will support students in perpetuity, or make current-use gifts that immediately and directly are awarded to students.

Selection of Recipients

Foundation Scholarship recipients are chosen by the John Tyler Community College Foundation's Scholarships Committee.

Supporting Program-Specific Scholarships

Gifts of any size are welcome and may be directed to any existing Foundation Scholarship fund. If you don't know the exact name of the fund, that's OK; just make a note saying your gift is for [Name of Program] scholarships, and we'll contact you with any questions.
