"The toughest part about being in college is paying for it, because I actually don't get the HOPE Scholarship. Gwinnett Tech offered me an amazing scholarship. I got the Hudgens Award. Without that, I actually don't think I would have gone to college. College has changed my life by allowing me to go further in life."

- Kerry Brewer, Gwinnett Technical College fashion merchandising student

Apply for scholarships.

Scholarships are awarded to students meeting the specific requirements of each scholarship found. Scholarships do not need to be repaid, and eligibility may or may not be dependent on financial need.

Gwinnett Tech offers scholarships through three sources: the Gwinnett Tech Foundation, various business- and civic-sponsored scholarships, and through the Georgia HOPE scholarship.

Contact the financial aid office for details about our business- and civic-sponsored scholarships and for information about the Georgia HOPE scholarship and grant.
