Ogeechee Technical College strives to provide high quality technical education at an affordable price
In an era of rapidly rising post secondary education cost, Ogeechee Technical College continually strives to provide high quality technical education at an affordable price. To accomplish these ends, the college seeks to establish strategic partnerships with foundations, government, local business and industry, and other grant making sources. The Ogeechee Technical College Office of Grant Development provides technical assistance for obtaining supplementary funding to meet college goals and objectives.

Office of Grant Development (OGD) at OTC
This is the office through which faculty, staff, and administrators may begin the grant-seeking process. OGD provides help identifying funding opportunities, gives feedback on grant proposals, and helps with the application process, among other services.
