Scholarships exist so that students can pay their tuition and school expenses as they pursue their career and education goals. Through the Foundation, Renton Technical College has over 20 scholarships and endowments and a variety of outside funding sources available to qualified students.
"There are no words to describe how excited I was to learn that I had been selected as a scholarship recipient. This money will not only help me to buy the tools and software to fix my computer but it also motivates me to focus and study harder in school because it tells me that there are people willing to help and support students who are really in need." - Dung Phu, Computer Science
