3 Things to Know:

TechForce Foundation is separate from any technical school.

The Foundation is a sole & separate 501(c)(3) nonprofit. The Foundation’s scholarship & grant program has its own qualifications and autonomous review/decision process. No one can make assurances or award offers other than the Foundation through its official, online application portal.

Complete the General Application, and then apply to Recommended Opportunities.

Step 1:   Complete General Application (make sure it reads “Complete” and not “Drafted”)

Step 2: Hover over Opportunities, and select “Recommended” from the dropdown menu.

Step 3: Read Recommended Opportunities descriptions. Apply to any you’re qualified for.  You MUST “Apply To” at least one of the Recommended Opportunities to be considered for any of the donor awards that roll up under those umbrella opportunities.

New cycles open and close constantly throughout the year, so if you don’t get selected for an award, keep applying to new Recommended Opportunity pools. Keep your info in your General App current (Maybe your attendance or GPA has changed, or you’ve saved more than you had last time–it may make a difference!) and keep applying to new pools of Recommended Opportunities.  Donor funds don’t grow on trees, so you have to put forth a little effort!

Award offers are sent via email;  You must “Accept” to receive the award.

Imagine, you apply to the Foundation, and get picked for an award. We send the ‘award offer’ to you via email.  (The Foundation no longer mails letters!). But you don’t check your Inbox or sign in to your online dashboard, so you never officially click the “Accept” button… The system assumes you’ve moved to Greenland. After 14-days of no response, the award is officially revoked and offered to someone else. Please, check your Inbox and/or sign in around decision days!
