How to apply for scholarships
The Georgia Piedmont Technical College Foundation has launched a new service called AwardSpring which matches students with nearly two dozen internal scholarships. Students simply log in using their GPTC student computer username name and password to gptc.awardspring.com. After completing a general questionnaire, students are matched to the available scholarships for which they qualify.
