Scholarship Opportunities

NTC Foundation Scholarships

Northwest Technical College Foundation manages scholarships for current and new NTC students who are enrolled either part-time or full-time. Scholarship awards range from $500 to $2,500 per semester.

When you click on the applicant tutorial, you will be routed to the Northwest Minnesota Foundation’s (NMF) website. NMF hosts the online scholarship application process for Northwest Technical College Foundation.

Please watch the suggested applicant tutorial and create an account to take the eligibility quiz to find available scholarship opportunities. Once you’ve completed the quiz, a list of scholarships will appear. Students complete a single online application (click here to complete) and a scholarship selection committee chooses recipients based on their answers to three essay questions on the application.

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.

Application Process

The Fall scholarship process will begin February 1 with a deadline of May 31.
