Scholarship Guidelines

  • Scholarships are applicable for the term in which they are awarded.  If you do not enroll in classes by the Pell Recalculation Date, your scholarship will be awarded to the next candidate that is currently attending NWTC. 
  • The minimum credit load for scholarships to be applied is 6 credits for the FULL semester (this includes both 8-week sessions; so, 6 credits can be split between the two sessions any way you choose) 
  • If your schooling is fully funded from another source (ex. – employer, WIOA, Veterans benefits…) and cannot be applied to your student tuition account ~ it will be awarded to the next qualified student with unmet financial need.  Scholarships are for tuition/books/program fees to allow everyone access to their educational pursuits.
