York Technical College Opens Scholarship Applications for 2014-2015


ROCK HILL, SC   The York Technical College Foundation is offering students assistance with funding their education by opening its scholarship applications for the 2014-2015 academic year.

According to a study from the Institute for Higher Education Policy the number one barrier that students run into when it comes to attending college is finances. Every year students are deterred from continuing their education because of high tuition costs and limited available financial aid.

The York Technical College Foundation strives to take financial pressures off of students in order to continue to provide them with pathways to success. The Foundation awards scholarships to students attending York Tech, based on the availability of funds and eligibility requirements of each scholarship. The first scholarship application period is currently open until March 31 for new students interested in attending York Tech for the Fall 2014 – 2015 academic year. There are also scholarships (with appraoching deadinlines) available for students currently attending York Tech this Spring 2014.

To access and complete the application, students can click on the "sign-in" button (located in the upper right corner) or click here and log in using their York Technical College WebAdvisor login and password. The Scholarship Application deadline for most scholarships is March 31, 2014.
