NWTC Promise

Tuition free degree? Yes, please!

NWTC Promise Scholarship

What is the promise?

  • We promise to pay the balance of tuition and course fees for eligible students.
  • We also promise to provide a $100 book voucher each semester a student is eligible for NWTC Promise Scholarship.
  • You promise to meet eligibility requirements as a high school student and maintain specific academic standards while an NWTC student.

College is possible for all – we promise. The NWTC Promise Scholarship will make going to college a reality for eligible, hardworking high school seniors who cannot afford the cost of earning a degree. Thanks to the generosity of donors, the NWTC Educational Foundation will help qualified students attend college.
