A large number of scholarships are available for students in the healthcare field, and also for welding, cybersecurity and IT, multimedia communications, criminal justice, the sciences, education, language arts, journalism, music, business administration, and more.  Criteria for awards varies, supporting financial need, academic achievement, area and tribal students, first generation college students, and more. Application deadlines vary, with the majority due Sunday, April 18, 2021. Applicants are advised to check each scholarship’s deadline.
