How to Apply for a Scholarship through the FTCC Foundation

September 23, 2019 0 By Ronny Jaskolski


Last year, the FTCC Foundation made over $200,000
available for scholarships. Some students assume that scholarships are
primarily designed for students who are in dire need of financial assistance. This is not the case. In fact, winning a scholarship will be beneficial
to any student for several years following their receipt of the award. Scholarships enable students to continue their
education debt free, or at least decrease their amount of debt. Scholarships, unlike loans, do not have to
be paid back. The process is quick and easy! Lets get started. First, visit www.faytechcc.edu. Scroll over to “Financial Aid,” then click
on “Scholarships”. Please take time to review the information
on this page, and then click “faytechcc.academicworks.com” Here, you can view the different scholarship
opportunities available. You can search by keyword, or click on “Show
Filters.” Scholarships can also be narrowed down by
field through the “Scopes” filter. Provide as much information about yourself
as possible to search for opportunities for which you may be eligible. Now, only the scholarships within the selected
fields are visible. In the upper right hand corner of the page
to start your application click “Sign In”. Use your active directory to login. The same username and password that’s used
to sign into campus computers and WebAdvisor. For a more accurate list of opportunities
you may be eligible for, please complete the General Application and review your “Recommended
Opportunities” page. Your “Applicant Record” will be brought
in from Datatel. All you need to do is fill out the “Profile
Information.” You can save your application at any time
by clicking “Save and Keep Editing” at the bottom of the form. Once all questions and essays have been answered
the student must sign and date their general application then click on “Finish and submit”. Click the green arrow to view the recommended
scholarships for you to apply to. You are able to apply to any scholarship that
has an “Apply” button under “Actions”. Once the ‘review period’ is over, scholarships
will be awarded based on the criteria as outlined in each opportunity. You will receive correspondence that will
inform you of scholarships you have been ‘offered.’ You may elect to accept or decline each scholarship. If you decline an opportunity, it will be
rescinded and ‘offered’ to another qualified applicant. If you choose to ‘accept’ an opportunity,
you will be required to complete a Thank You Letter; which will be sent to the Donor of
that particular scholarship. Choosing to accept prompts a Thank you Letter
Template for you. Be sure to use correct spelling, grammar,
and punctuation as these letters are forwarded to those that have supplied the funding for
the scholarship. Submit your ‘Thank You Letter’ and your
award is made active and thereby accessible via your WebAdvisor/Self-Service account. If you skip out on a scholarship because you
think you don’t have a good shot at landing it, you could be missing out on an opportunity
for some generous funding, and free funding that you won’t need to pay back. There are partial and full scholarships, book
funds and emergency scholarships. Instead of piling up loans that have to be
paid back with interest, apply for a scholarship at FTCC today!
