Students: Foundation

I am dedicated to my studies and am continuing my education. In receiving this scholarship I know others believe in me as well.”

The NTC Foundation is committed to assisting new and current students in achieving their educational goals by offering scholarships to help with tuition, books, and school-related expenses. With the generous support of our donors, the Foundation typically awards more than 350 scholarships annually, ranging from $100 to $2,000. Additional funds are also available for emergency purposes, GED and Accuplacer testing, and Learning Center services. And, some funds are specific to our regional campuses. All are offered with the intent of helping our students succeed.
