Scholarships


The scholarship application period for Spring 2019 is OPEN. Complete a General Application.  Your application will be automatically matched to ALL scholarships for which you are eligible based on the criteria of the scholarship.

There may be additional scholarships you are eligible for that may require you to answer a few more questions.  To get to those scholarships you must complete your General Application and THEN click on the recommended button.  If any additional scholarships exist, it will take you to an additional list of scholarships for which you may apply by answering more questions or completing the donor required essay.

If you have already completed the General Application, you may update information in your application to be considered for spring awards.

Make sure you update the application to select Spring 2019 and the number of hours you plan to attend NCTC in the spring in order to be considered.

Please do not make changes to any previous selections to Summer or Fall hours as this is the same application and we want to keep that information once it is archived. 

Application Deadline is October 15, 2018 at midnight.

Also take a look at the external opportunities and check it often. As we are made aware of scholarships outside of NCTC Foundation, these opportunities will be posted on External Opportunities.
