NTC Foundation Scholarship Period Begins January 23

(WAUSAU, Wis.) – Northcentral Technical College (NTC) students who are accepted into an NTC associate degree or technical diploma program and are planning to take six or more credits in fall 2017 are encouraged to apply for NTC Foundation scholarships. Beginning January 23, 2017, scholarship applications for the spring 2017 semester can be found at www.ntc.edu/scholarships, at regional campuses, in Student Services or in program areas. Applications will be available until the deadline on February 17, 2017. One application works for all scholarships.

“Many scholarships are established by donors to help students in specific programs or who have a particular interest or background. Because of the diverse criteria, a large percentage of applicants qualify for at least one of the over 400 NTC Foundation scholarships, ranging from $100 - $2,000, which are awarded each semester,” according to Sheila Rossmiller, Director of Annual Giving and Scholarships.
