NWTC Educational Foundation awards $730,000 in scholarships
Northeast Wisconsin Technical College Educational Foundation awarded approximately $730,000 scholarships to 874 NWTC students during the 2019/2020 academic year.
Each student received an average of $835. Money can be used to help pay for tuition, books and supplies.
“This year was especially challenging for our students as COVID-19 changed work, education and home life,” said NWTC Educational Foundation Director Crystal Harrison. “Our message to our students is we are here for you and we want you to succeed in your career goals. Scholarships are available to help relieve some financial burden.”
Scholarships through the Foundation are made possible by dedicated donors who know financial assistance makes a difference in students’ lives.
Driven by the belief that everyone in Northeast Wisconsin deserves access to higher education, the Northeast Wisconsin Technical College Educational Foundation works to make college possible for all. The public, nonprofit organization accepts charitable gifts on behalf of NWTC and distributes the contributions in accordance with the donors’ wishes. In 2020, the Foundation celebrates 50 years of facilitating student scholarships, funding and programs that advance the College’s mission and vision.
