Create Scholarship Opportunities
By contributing to TCC Scholarships, you directly impact the success of a student. Scholarships lift financial barriers and allow students to focus on their educational aspirations and complete their degrees. Your gift will make a difference by helping students cover college expenses, such as tuition, books, and fees.
Contribute to Existing TCC Scholarships
For one-time or recurring gifts to a specific scholarship fund or the general scholarship fund, use the TCC Online Giving Form. Designate your gift to “scholarships.” Note the name of the scholarship in the comment box at the bottom of the form.
To learn more about established scholarships or get the name of a specific scholarship fund, contact the TCC Foundation at 918-595-7977 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

A TCC Foundation Development Officer will assist you with a contribution timeline to guide your scholarship fund to the $25,000 goal.
