Students need YOU on Giving Tuesday!
Whether you can give $5, $50 or $100 to one of the student funds below, your gift will make a huge difference.
The fund with the highest dollar amount of gifts will receive a personal bonus gift of $1,000 from President/CEO Dr. Sherry Zylka.
Student Emergency Fund
The Student Emergency Fund is available to students who encounter an unforeseen financial emergency or catastrophic event which would otherwise prevent them from continuing their education at BSCTC. Help us help students stay in school and make progress toward a degree.
The Nest relies on fundraising and grants to stay open. Designed as a resource hub for students, students can stop by The Nest and grab a cup of coffee, gather school supplies, take home a bag of groceries, or pick up job interview clothing at no cost. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Nest and BSCTC libraries have partnered to offer Food City grocery cards to students.
Comeback Opportunity Fund
The Comeback Opportunity helps pay off a past balance with BSCTC so previously enrolled students can return to complete their program of study. Students are responsible for a portion of their debt and must show potential for academic excellence upon returning to BSCTC.
Big Sandy Hispanic and Latino Scholars Fund
In 2019 a donor created this scholarship for Hispanic/ Latino students who enroll in at least six credit hours. Supporting this scholarship is one way we work to tell the world we are making space for everyone in our classrooms and on our campuses.
Endowed Scholarship Fund
Every year the foundation awards nearly $10,000 to students enrolled in programs that contribute to workforce development in high-need areas or students desiring to transfer to a 4-year university in Kentucky.
Greatest Need Fund
Gifts to the Greatest Need Fund supports BSCTC’s top priorities throughout the year. The majority of donations the College receives are restricted to specific initiatives. However, by partnering with us through a gift in this category, you allow the College to respond to issues and opportunities – whatever they are and whenever they arise.
