Scholarships totaling $40,000 were awarded to incoming students who enrolled in high-demand career fields
APRIL 16, 2018 — Northland Community & Technical College (NCTC) is pleased to announce its Workforce Development Scholarship recipients.
In 2017, the Legislature created the Workforce Development Scholarship program and appropriated $1 million in fiscal year 2019 to Minnesota State encouraging students to enroll in high-demand programs at all state colleges. This year, Minnesota State will pilot the scholarships program, awarding $2,500 scholarships to 400 new students. NCTC was allocated 16 scholarships totaling $40,000 to award for the 2018-2019 academic year. To qualify for the scholarship, students must be enrolled in one of four high-demand career areas: advanced manufacturing, agriculture, health care services, or information technology.
"The legislature has certainly stepped up and recognized the important role community colleges play in developing our workforce," said Dr. Dennis Bona, NCTC President. "This is a great win for both students and employers at a critical time in our local economy."
