Thanks to the contributions of individual donors and organizations, TCC’s Educational Foundation is able to provide scholarships to support students’ academic studies and achievements. Awards may be used for tuition, books and fees at TCC.

Most TCC Educational Foundation scholarships are worth $500 or more. They do not need to be repaid. Depending on your unmet need, you may be awarded more than one scholarship.

TCC scholarship recipient Dasha Chaney was awarded the Christopher M. Garrett Memorial scholarship for $1,800 and the Barnes and Noble Textbook scholarship for $600.

Chaney completed her Tidewater Community College cyber degree in just one year. “I’ve gone from nothing to something in three semesters,” she said.

Automotive student Sawyer Matthews received a $2,000 scholarship from the Hampton Roads Automobile Dealers Association. “College is expensive and every little bit helps,” he said.

Student Olivia Brichter earned the Tryntje and Norman Willcox Endowed Memorial Scholarship for $1,000 and a $600 Norfolk Campus General Scholarship.
