“The SRTC Foundation is proud to offer a variety of scholarships each semester. Scholarships provide the necessary financial support to students who need additional assistance with tuition, books, and other fees. By offering more scholarships for students, the Foundation and the College hope to improve the job skills, technical training, and educational level of the citizens of the communities we serve.
