Gwinnett Technical College provides scholarships to our students with support from our Foundation and charitable donors. Scholarships are a form of Financial Aid that do not have to be repaid. Gwinnett Tech scholarships are awarded to students who meet the specific requirements; eligibility is not always based on financial need.

Scholarship funds may be used for any educational expense. This can include tuition, books, and supplies.
Please note: If a student receives funds through the Workforce Opportunity Investment Act (WOIA) and is awarded a scholarship, additional funding may reduce the amount of WOIA funds available to the student.

Scholarship Application Deadlines:
Fall Semester: March 1 – March 31
Spring Semester: September 1 – September 30

Scholarship applications are submitted and accepted through the Foundation. If you have been awarded a Gwinnett Tech Scholarship, you will be notified of the status through your student email account. Students may also check the status of their application at Gwinnetttech.AcademicWorks.

Gwinnett Tech students can apply online for Gwinnett Tech Foundation scholarships by visiting Gwinnetttech.AcademicWorks and completing the electronic application. Gwinnett Tech students must be currently enrolled and taking classes in order to apply for scholarships in the semesters that scholarships are offered. Based on the information you provide in your application, the system will be able to identify and suggest specific scholarships that match your needs.

Please note that applying for a scholarship does not guarantee that you will receive one. It is a competitive process, so be certain to complete the application thoroughly, check for spelling and grammatical errors, and thoughtfully answer the essay questions.

Please send scholarship-related questions or requests for information to or call 678-226-6425.
