Applications open for NTCC ‘machine tool’ scholarship
Northshore Technical Community College is accepting applications from Louisiana residents in the college’s five-parish service area (Washington, St. Tammany, St. Helena, Tangipahoa and Livingston) for full-tuition scholarships for Machine Tool Technology. The Machine Tool Technology Program prepares students to make parts from metals and plastics using lathes, mills, drill presses, grinders and hand tools for future employment in a global economy.
“The Workforce Machine Tool Technology scholarship fund provides scholarships to assist students who will enroll full-time in NTCC’s Machine Tool Technology program,” said Dr. Jim Carlson, Vice-Chancellor for Strategic Initiatives. “The recipient is selected by Northshore Technical Community College’s Scholarship Selection Committee. Applicants must have a high school diploma or successfully completed the HiSet exam, but they are not required to submit ACT or SAT scores.” Additionally, students who apply for the scholarship must have a completed Free Application Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on file at time of application, with Northshore Technical Community College’s School Code: 006756.
Recipients of the scholarship must be registered full-time and declare a major in the Machine Tool Technology program at Northshore Technical Community College’s Sullivan Campus in Bogalusa. Applications are due by May 31, 2021. However, qualified applicants will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.
“At the end of each semester, Northshore Technical Community College will verify the student’s progress in the program to determine whether the student is eligible to receive the scholarship the following semester,” Carlson said. “Upon graduation, Northshore Technical Community College will request information from the scholarship recipient regarding certification testing outcomes and initial employment information.” The scholarships are made possible through the Louisiana Community and Technical College System 2020 Rapid Response Grant. Scholarship details and the online application are available on the NTCC website at www.northshorecollege.edu/financial-aid/scholarships.
