Press Release: (Acworth, Ga. – April 12, 2019) The Chattahoochee Tech Foundation honored the recipients of 53 different scholarships at an awards luncheon held Friday, April 12, at the North Metro Campus in Acworth.

“With scholarship awards ranging from $500 to $2,500, the total value of these scholarships was $90,800,” said Chattahoochee Technical College Advancement Coordinator Amanda Henderson. “The 84 winners represent a wide variety of programs at Chattahoochee Tech, and they will be able to use the scholarships to advance their educational and career goals.”

Scholarship winners competed against hundreds of student applicants throughout the college, according to Henderson. The college’s Board of Trustees scored the recipients, and then the top applicants were matched with the appropriate scholarship. In addition to meeting the special criteria for certain scholarships, applicants must meet specific GPA requirements, demonstrate financial need, and be enrolled for a specified number of credit hours.

“We are very grateful for the generosity of our scholarship donors,” said Chattahoochee Foundation Board of Trustees Chair Jason Anavitarte. “Through their support, they are helping to make education an affordable reality for students at Chattahoochee Technical College.”
