Take Advantage of Scholarships

The Mid-State Technical College Foundation, Inc., awarded 329 different scholarships, totaling nearly $423,112 to our students in 2023 that never has to be repaid. These awards range from $250–$2,000 per student, with the average award in the $500–$1,000 range. For most of our students, receiving a scholarship of this amount is an important piece of the debt-free puzzle and well worth the time it takes to apply.

Everything you need to apply for scholarships is on this page. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact the Foundation & Alumni office.
