New Freedom Fund established for STC Military Students
SAVANNAH, Ga. – Savannah Technical College has established the Freedom Fund providing scholarship assistance for soldiers, veterans and spouses thanks to a generous donation.
This needs-based fund will support those who serve by buying books and tools for active duty service members, paying registration fees each semester for military spouses (MyCAA) students and covering unpaid tuition and registration fees up to 100% for those with VA benefits not covering 100% education benefits. Service members, whose VA benefits have expired, may also apply for tuition assistance.
Savannah Technical College is a regionally accredited Institution of Higher Learning and approved to participate and administer Veteran’s Education Assistance programs.
Ranked #4 in the U.S. as “Best for Vets” in 2016 by Military Times, Savannah Technical College has the largest enrollment of military-affiliated students in the Technical College System of Georgia. One in four STC students is a veteran, active duty service member or a military dependent/spouse. The College waives all general mandatory fees for active duty service members using military tuition assistance. In 2015, Savannah Tech opened a Veteran’s Service Center at the Savannah campus.
