Verizon has been a longtime supporter of educational initiatives that provide under served students the skills needed for success in college or career. With a focus on using technology to help build a brighter future, Verizon has generously provided the Gwinnett Tech Foundation with funding to support student success in both our Business Technology and Engineering Technology programs
In order to be eligible for a Verizon Scholarship, a student must:
- Be accepted into Gwinnett Technical College
- Be Accepted into a Business Management, Marketing Management, or Engineering Technology program
- Have a minimum GPA of 2.0
- Submit an essay of at approximately 300 words that explains how a Gwinnett Tech Foundation 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.
Scholarship funds are to be used for tuition, books, and program supplies used solely for the benefit of the individual receiving the scholarship. 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 recipient.
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.
