Access Amazing Scholarship: College can be Free at GTCC

Recruiter Barry Hawkins gives a tour of GTCC Jamestown Campus to Lee County High School Students

What is the Access Amazing Scholarship?

The Access Amazing Scholarship covers the cost of tuition and fees for many high school graduates in Guilford County.

The scholarship removes cost as a barrier for students graduating from a Guilford County high school and is a "last dollar" scholarship* that pays the remaining balance of student in-state tuition, college fees, and course fees once all other federal and state grants, scholarships, and sponsorships are applied.

Step 2: Complete the FAFSA

We all dislike completing forms. But with the Free Application for Financial Aid (FAFSA), completing it opens doors to a host of aid, locally and nationally.

What's the No. 1 reason to complete the FAFSA?

Most scholarships, grants, and financial aid providers – including colleges – require it!
