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 was awarded for Fall 2014 and Spring 2015 semesters.   Awards range from $250 to $1,500 per semester.

Only one (1) online application is required for most of the NTC scholarships that are listed below.  To apply for the Fred Breen and the Paul Bunyan Vintage Auto Club scholarships you will need letters of reference to be eligible for a scholarship.

Applications are reviewed by a selection team comprised of NTC staff, faculty, and Foundation representatives.   Each application is rated based on how well you answer the three (3) essay questions.  Successful applicants are matched with the scholarship(s) that meet the scholarship criteria such as GPA and program of study.    We encourage you to complete your application in Microsoft Word and have someone else proof your application before you complete the online form. You can copy and paste the word document into the online application.

There may be a few spring semester 2015 scholarships.   Check the website or contact the Admissions office after November 1st for updates.   The Fall 2015 and Spring 2016 scholarship announcements will be publicized by March 1st with May 2015 announcements.

For assistance, contact Sue Ludwig, Admissions Office, Room 120, or email: scholarships@ntcmn.edu.
