Mid-State Foundation Scholarships Available to New Students
Applications are due December 4
For the City Times
The Mid-State Technical College Foundation recently announced that they are currently accepting applications from new program students for Spring Semester scholarships.
The deadline to apply for a Spring Semester scholarship is 4 p.m. on Friday, December 4.
Spring Semester begins January 11, and students who are attending Mid-State for the first time can use these scholarships as a way of saving money on their educational investment in their future. About 80 percent of all Mid-State students receive some form of financial assistance toward their education.
Current Mid-State student Samuel Buehler said it is relatively easy to apply for Mid-State Foundation scholarships, and that his short investment of time led to over $7500 in scholarships.
“Every future Mid-State student should apply for Mid-State Foundation scholarships,” said Buehler. “What do you have to lose?”
If you have been thinking about going to college and these scholarships could make a difference, there still is time to register for Mid-State Spring Semester classes.
The college’s website (www.mstc.edu) offers an online application for admission and the helpful information you need to determine if Mid-State is right for you.
Mid-State is also holding several events to assist people with things like completing the college application, applying for financial aid, and registering for classes; visit the college’s website to learn more about Destination Registration on the week of Nov. 9 and One Stop to College during the weeks of January 4 and 11.
Mid-State’s tuition compares favorably to the cost of other two- and four-year colleges and universities, and a Mid-State Foundation scholarship further enhances the affordability of a Mid-State education.
“We are thrilled to share the incredible generosity of so many Mid-State Foundation donors with our students through these scholarships,” said Mid-State Foundation Director Jill Steckbauer. “Each student scholarship is an investment in our future.”
The application is available online at www.mstc.edu/scholarships or by contacting the Mid-State Foundation Office at 715-422-5322.
Incomplete or late applications will not be considered, and applicants must be a new student enrolled in nine or more credits to qualify for these scholarships.
Students who will be attending any of Mid-State’s four locations in Adams, Marshfield, Stevens Point, and Wisconsin Rapids are eligible to apply.
The Mid-State Technical College Foundation was established in 1979 and is a non-profit organization which supports the students and educational programs of Mid-State.
