Holtkamp Heating and Air Conditioning Scholarship
Established in 1996, Holtkamp Heating & Air is a locally owned and operated business with an A+ rating form the Better Business Bureau. The Holtkamp Family Foundation was created to strengthen local families by providing critical basic needs, supporting education and encouraging cultural programs. Longtime advocates of technical college education, this scholarship was established by Matthew and Suzanne Holtkamp to provide financial assistance to Gwinnett Technical College students enrolled in an HVAC program.
In order to be eligible for a Holtkamp Family Foundation Scholarship, a student must:
- Have been accepted into a HVAC program of study (certificate or diploma)
- Have a minimum cumulative GPA of at least 2.5
- Demonstrate potential for success and solid work ethic
- Submit an essay of at approximately 300 words that explains how the scholarship will enable you to complete your program, and any other financial or personal circumstances which you feel are important for the Selection Committee to consider in its evaluation.
Applications cannot be processed unless all required documentation is attached to the application at time of submittal. Funds can be used towards the cost of tuition, books, or program supplies but cannot used for the purchase of a laptop. Before funds will be disbursed, the Foundation office must receive a note of thanks from the recipient to the donor(s).
The Gwinnett Tech Foundation committee will select and notify the scholarship recipients.
If the recipient fails to enroll, withdraws from college, or does not maintain eligibility requirements, the Gwinnett Tech Foundation will select another student if time permits; otherwise, funds will be held in the donor’s account to be carried over to the next semester.
