FDTC adult, dual enrollment students qualify for funding
Florence-Darlington Technical College (FDTC) has received funding through the SC Workforce and Industrial Needs Scholarship (SC WINS), which allows many of its students, including those enrolled in dual enrollment courses, to earn college credit at little to no cost.
SC WINS is a S.C. Technical College System scholarship program designed to fill the workforce shortages in the state. SC WINS will cover the tuition cost of courses at FDTC after the student receives all other scholarship funding. Recipients who qualify will receive $50 per credit hour (up to $600). The SC WINS funding will be in addition to $100 per credit hour of lottery funding. A book allowance of up to $300 ($150 per semester) will also be in effect annually.
There are two ways a student can qualify for SC WINS:
A student can qualify by income if they are receiving Lottery Tuition Assistance Program (LTAP) and meet United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) income eligibility guidelines.
A student can also qualify for the scholarship funding by major. Students at FDTC, who are pursuing a higher education in a critical workforce program and are receiving funding through LTAP, can receive SC WINS funding for the 2019 fall semester.
A student qualifying by program must be enrolled in at least six credit hours and making passing grades in classes. Students must maintain at least a 2.0 GPA after attempting 24 credit hours to continue receiving the scholarship
