Where Education Changes Lives

Since 2007, Tacoma Community College Foundation scholarships have helped students to earn technical certificates or complete two-year associate’s degrees to pursue the remainder of their undergraduate studies at a college or university, advance in their career or succeed in a new career.

Foundation scholarships have impacted the lives of thousands of TCC students, who come from different backgrounds but share one belief – that education can change and improve their lives.

Inspiring Student Success

Our mission is to inspire investment in student success by supporting programs that reduce barriers to education and by funding scholarships that create more equitable access for students of all background to achieve their dreams.

247 The number of scholarships awarded during the 2017-2018 academic year.
1,286 Total scholarships awarded since 2007.
$2.483 million Scholarship money awarded from 2007-2018.


Apply for a Scholarship


When I was awarded these scholarships, I knew it was my opportunity to get back in school and pursue a new career. I will succeed because others have invested in me, and I want to make them proud and give back to my community. ”

Dawn Williams, 2016, Two-time Foundation scholarship recipient
