Sharon J. Bartels Scholarship

Are you pursuing your dream career, but need help paying for the education to get it? Do you have an unusual financial situation that is holding you back from completing college? Each semester, the Sharon J. Bartels Endowment Fund presents $500 to GTC students who are in need of financial assistance to pay for tuition, books and program supplies. The scholarship was established in 2014 to honor the legacy of retired Gwinnett Tech president, Sharon J. Bartels, and her service to the college.

Eligibility Requirements:
In order to be eligible for the Sharon J. Bartels Scholarship, a student must:

  • Are enrolled in a certificate, diploma or degree program
  • Have a minimum 2.5 GPA

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 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.
