Local veterans now have another avenue to further their training and careers at Greenville Technical College.

Veteran Scholarships Forever is available at Greenville Technical College to provide funding for veterans and their spouses taking vocational and skilled trades training programs that can lead to immediate employment.

“Greenville Tech has helped many veterans over the years find new careers,” Ron Demonet, the program’s director, said. “We are excited to help them assist more.”

People interested in applying for the scholarship should contact GTC and people interested to donate to the scholarship fund can contact www.scholarshipsforever.org.

The college manages the endowment and provides scholarships to veterans with the most need to obtain the skills needed to be qualified for a job placement that will allow veterans to provide for themselves and their families, Demonet said.

Veterans are still eligible for other forms of financials aid, Demonet said. Veteran Scholarships Forever does not grant scholarships directly, but interested veterans and current spouses can contact the colleges’ financial aid or Veterans Affairs department to inquire about the program.
