Presidential Scholarship Application Deadline Extended to May 1

Texarkana College’s Presidential Scholarship deadline has been extended to May 1, 2020, for all graduating seniors in all counties in TC’s service area. Students who are awarded the scholarship will receive up to two years (or 60 semester credit hours) of college tuition-free.

The TC Presidential Scholarship was established in 2015 to reward hard-working area students by helping them reach their higher education goals without the burden of financial debt. Students who graduate in 2020 from a public school in Bowie County can automatically qualify for the scholarship with a cumulative weighted GPA of 3.25 and by graduating in the top 15%, or top 10 graduates, of their class depending on the school size. Graduates from Miller County, AR, or Atlanta ISD, Avery ISD, Bloomburg ISD, Linden-Kildare ISD, McLeod ISD or Queen City ISD will have guaranteed acceptance for the scholarship with a cumulative weighted GPA or 3.25 and by graduating in the top 15% of their class.

Students who do not automatically qualify or students from private, charter, alternative or home schools are also encouraged to apply for the scholarship by submitting a 300-word essay describing their academic and career goals.
