Take Advantage of Scholarships

The Mid-State Technical College Foundation, Inc., administers 491 different scholarships, awarding nearly $275,000 to our students every year that never has to be repaid. These awards range from $200–$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 and the Sponsor a Scholar program is on this page. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact the Foundation & Alumni office.
