The SRTC Foundation is a non-profit corporation whose mission is to promote the cause of higher education and expand educational opportunities to the students of SRTC. The Foundation strives to create scholarships and endowments and assist in the financing of capital improvements and other college-related expenses. A few of the scholarships offered and awarded this semester were:

The Non-Traditional Scholarship was established to encourage enrollment in and completion of a technical certificate of credit, diploma, or degree in a field typically considered gender-specific. Non-traditional occupations are careers in which less than 25 percent of a gender is represented in the workforce. These careers often pay higher salaries, include challenging work, offer opportunities to develop new skills, and possess the possibility of advancement potential.

The county-specific scholarships were designed to help students from SRTC’s seven county service delivery area, consisting of Colquitt, Grady, Mitchell, Thomas, Tift, Turner and Worth counties.
