WISCONSIN RAPIDS — Mid-State Technical College has awarded $30,000 in scholarships to 24 graduating high school students for the school year of 2017-2018. Each scholarship is valued at $1,250 and will be divided between the fall and spring semesters. These scholarships will help new students achieve their goal of attaining an associate degree or technical diploma.
Compared to previous years, the Mid-State Technical College Foundation received nearly twice as many scholarship applications during this year’s January-to-March application window, according to Mid-State Foundation & Alumni Director Jill Steckbauer.
“The increase in applications corresponds to the increased demand we’re seeing in the workforce for students with a technical college education,” said Steckbauer.
