TCC Foundation announces $1 million gift to provide scholarships for health care students  

The Tarrant County College Foundation has received a $1 million gift from North Texas Specialty Physicians (NTSP) to establish the Advancing Healthcare for North Texas Endowed Scholarship program. This endowed scholarship fund will be used to provide financial assistance to eligible students enrolled in a health science or nursing program at TCC.

“The Tarrant County College Foundation is so very grateful for this gift which enables the Foundation to help Tarrant County College in its work to prepare students for the workforce, now and in the future,” said Janet Hahn, chair of TCC Foundation’s Board of Directors. “This gift not only benefits and empowers the students, but it strengthens our community. Together we, the Foundation, Tarrant County College, and its generous donors are truly inspiring change and elevating futures.”

The Advancing Healthcare for North Texas Endowed Scholarship enables TCC Foundation to further its mission of paving the way for future healthcare providers across the North Texas region by assisting TCC in providing prime educational opportunities that create a sustainable path to career success. Market demand for critical health care positions in Tarrant County is expected to grow faster than the national average, meaning TCC graduates are quite attractive to regional employers.
