The Foundation assists students through various scholarship opportunities. The recipients of these scholarships represent a cross-section of talented individuals from Piedmont Technical College's academic programs. These scholarships help to retain the best and brightest talent for our local work force and provide educational opportunities to those who otherwise may not have been able to attend college. Scholarship recipients are recognized each spring with a luncheon.

Annually, the Piedmont Technical College Foundation hosts a barbecue dinner for local, state and federal legislators to raise awareness of PTC’s vital role in the work force development of South Carolina’s Lakelands region. Legislators and PTC officials discuss the college’s essential function in the region, South Carolina’s current economic status and how the budget deficits would affect the services provided by technical colleges.
