Scholarships | Western Technical College


Scholarships make college possible for many students. Because of generous donors, more than 500 scholarships ranging from $150 to $2,500 are available for qualified students through Western Technical College Foundation. Some are program-related and others are open to all students. Western also provides access to many other scholarships granted by local and regional organizations.
