Foundation Scholarships

Northwest Technical College Foundation manages scholarships for current and new NTC students enrolled part-time and full-time. Over $50,000 in scholarships are awarded each year.   Scholarship awards range from $250 to $1,500 per semester and a few scholarships may be renewed for more than one semester. 

Students complete one (1) online application and the scholarship committee selects the recipients for a specific scholarship(s) based on how well you answer the three (3) essay questions on the application. Successful applicants must meet the scholarship criteria such as GPA, program of study, and the other criteria noted on the scholarship list below.

Increase your chance to receive a scholarship!  Type your answers to the essay questions in a Microsoft Word document first; have someone else proof your answers; then, cut and paste your final document into the online form. The online form does not offer Spellcheck.

Please Note:  Letters of recommendation are required for the Paul Bunyan Vintage Auto Club, Fred Breen, and the Young Professional scholarships.    To be eligible for those scholarships, submit the letters of recommendation to the Admissions office separately from the online application.

For application and deadline information, contact the Admissions Office or email: scholarships@ntcmn.edu.   The online scholarship applications typically open in March for the next academic year and in October for spring semester scholarships.
