Are you a single parent? Do you work full-time? Were you delayed starting college when you graduated high school for family or other reasons? The new $2000 Non-Traditional Scholarship program from the Texarkana College Foundation just might be what you need to get started in changing your life. 

The Texarkana College Foundation will be awarding $2,000 scholarships to hundreds of new non-traditional TC students for the academic year 2021-2022. This new financial assistance program supports students who are “starting over” with a career or college credential. The program is designed to assist non-traditional students who typically have very few opportunities to locate scholarships or financial aid, but who are dedicated to completing a degree or trade skills certificate that places them on a career path to earn higher wages resulting in a brighter future.
