The Education Foundation for Clinton City & Anderson County Schools provides a variety of services for Anderson County and Clinton City Schools. As a result of the success of a variety of fundraising and other grant awards, the Foundation is pleased to offer the opportunity to apply for funds to support high school students in taking advantage of early postsecondary opportunities in Anderson County Schools through Dual Enrollment, TDOE Promoted Student Industry Certifications, and AP Exams.

The student applying for the Student Industry Certification Grant must provide their previous testing results and their high school transcript with their grant application.
For AP Exams, the student must not qualify for assistance through the TDOE grant (verified by the counselor), must have successfully completed one AP Course and scored in the range to receive postsecondary credit, and must have the recommendation of the instructor for the course and their high school counselor.
