  • Wake Tech Foundation Scholarships

    Posted by Stacy Davidson on 4/16/2021

    Who is eligible?

    • Foundation scholarships are available to students enrolled in or who will be enrolled in Curriculum Education programs.
    • If you are not currently enrolled at Wake Tech, you will need to apply to the college first in order to receive your Wake Tech key account, which you will need in order to access the scholarship application.
    • Some Foundation scholarships are awarded purely based on financial need; however, most require a GPA of at least 2.0 (Wake Tech’s requirement for graduation).

    Two scholarships are specifically for Garner High School seniors - The GEDC Endowment for Education and the Yeargan Endowed Scholarship. 

    Students will submit a general scholarship application and will be considered for all Wake Tech Foundation Scholarships in which they qualify.
