Our Opportunities

Welcome to NCTC’s Scholarship Opportunities Homepage!

The scholarship application deadline for Spring 2022 was October 15, 2021. Applications received after this date will be considered only if funds are available. ALL scholarship applications in the system will be archived in February. A NEW application must be completed between March 1, 2022 and April 15, 2022 to apply for Summer 2022, Fall 2022, and Spring 2023.

Students who are new to NCTC will need to apply for admission before being able to complete a scholarship application. To access the General Scholarship Application sign in to OneLogin with your NCTC username and password and then click on myScholarships app. After the General Application is submitted, you are automatically matched to scholarship opportunities for which you immediately qualify. No further action is required for these auto-matched scholarships. However, if you see a “Recommended” under Opportunities, click on it and it will take you to an additional list of scholarships for which you may apply by answering more question or completing the donor required essay. For additional instructions see the Scholarship Application Guide.

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