Our Opportunities

Welcome to NCTC’s Scholarship Opportunities Homepage!
The scholarship application period for Summer 2018, Fall 2018, and Spring 2019 is closed. The deadline was April 15, 2018. The system will open again September 1st to accept applications for Spring 2019. Students who are new to NCTC need to apply for admission before being able to complete a scholarship application. For additional instructions see the Scholarship Application Guide.

In the meantime, take a look at the external opportunities and check it often. As we are made aware of scholarships outside of NCTC Foundation, these opportunities will be posted on our External Opportunities page.
