The Laurens County Future Scholarship provides recent high school graduates with a tuition-free path to complete two years of technical training, or the first half of a bachelor's degree at Piedmont Technical College.
Students must be current residents of Laurens County and have graduated from high school in the previous academic year or be early graduates in the spring or summer terms. For example, May 2014 grads will be eligible for the 2015-2016 academic year.
The scholarship is available for two consecutive academic years, for a maximum of six terms. Students who complete their chosen major within this time period are ineligible for additional funds toward a second major. There is no minimum or maximum credit-hour limit per semester.
Please note that books, incidental expenses, and class or program-related fees are the student's responsibility.
There are a few simple rules to qualify for and keep the scholarship.
