Where Education Changes Lives

Since 1967, 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 backgrounds to achieve their dreams.

198 The number of scholarships awarded during the 2022-2023 academic year.
2,771 Total scholarships awarded since 2007.
$4.9 million Scholarship money awarded from 2007-2022.


Apply for Scholarships


I am truly grateful for winning a scholarship offered by the TCC foundation. The scholarship helps me out tremendously in staying out of debt. Anyone who desires to move ahead, make a change in life or make a difference can find their place here at TCC. All are welcome.”

Kerry Ramroop, Nursing student & TCC 2017-2018 student body president
