How to Apply for SWGTC Scholarships

Summer Semester 2015 merit-based scholarships 

The deadline for these scholarships is April 18, 2015.
Merit Based scholarships are evaluated based on grades (transcripts), letter(s) of recommendation, and essays. Merit based scholarships are awarded based on availability. Applications for these scholarships are accepted the semester before they are awarded. You may apply only for those scholarships listed above that are currently accepting applications.
Review the General Scholarship Guidelines. These guidelines serve to offer further explanation to some of the criteria in SWGTC Foundation scholarship policies.
Starting Summer Semester 2015, all scholarship applications will be submitted online. Please note, applicants must still attach all supporting documentation found in each scholarship’s policies and procedures (such as essays, letter of recommendations, transcript, etc.) with the application. However, applications will no longer be turned into the Office of Institutional Advancement. 
Incomplete scholarship applications will NOT be reviewed! The Office of Institutional Advancement is not responsible for notifying students of incomplete applications. Therefore, incomplete applications will simply be sent a denial letter in reference to the scholarship applied for.
Be sure you have completed a FAFSA. Completion of a FAFSA is required for all SWGTC Foundation applications. For assistance, please see the Office of Financial Aid.
If you have any questions about scholarships or the application process, please contact the Office of Institutional Advancement at 229-227-2415 or the Office of Financial Aid at 229-225-5036.
