Scholarship Opportunities

NTC Foundation Scholarships

Northwest Technical College Foundation manages scholarships for current and new NTC students who enrolled either part-time or full-time. Scholarship awards range from $250 to $1,000 per semester, and a few scholarships may be renewed for more than one semester.

Students complete a single online application and a scholarship selection committee chooses recipients based on their answers to three essay questions on the application. Successful applicants must meet scholarship requirements such as GPA, program of study and other criteria noted below on the list of scholarships.

Application Tips

To increase your chances of receiving a scholarship, first type your answers to the essay questions in a Microsoft Word document. Ask someone else to proof your answers. Then cut and paste your final document into the online form. The online form does not offer spellcheck.
