In addition to scholarships through the York Technical College Foundation, you may be eligible for additional funding through the programs listed below. You do not need to submit a separate application for these scholarships and grants, as long as you complete the steps listed above.


Scholarships are awards that do not have to be paid back and are based on student performance and talent. Some scholarships consider financial need when determining eligibility.


Grants are sometimes referred to as “gift aid” because they are free money—financial aid that doesn't have to be repaid. Grants are often need-based, and can come from the federal government, your state government, your college or career school, or a private or nonprofit organization. Grants are typically awarded based on financial need, which is determined by the information submitted when you complete your FAFSA application.

*Occasionally, you might have to pay back part or all of a grant if, for example, you withdraw from school before finishing an enrollment period such as a semester.

Student Jobs

Federal Work Study programs allow students to work part-time to earn money for school.


Loans are money that must be repaid with interest. Student loans can also come from the federal government, your state government, college or career school, or private sources, such as a bank or financial institution.
