Students now must have plenty of money to devote to the cost of their educations. Why? Because so few students have applied for the scholarships that are available to them at Trident Technical College. It must be a sign that the economy is improving or, better yet, booming. If you are not one of those fortunate students who have their tuition and funding set for next year, then you still have time to complete the scholarship application.

The TTC scholarship application for the 2012-2013 academic year opened on Tuesday, January 17, 2012, in TTC Express and will close on Friday, March 9, 2012.
