Northwest Technical Institute, in partnership with Univision Arkansas, annually awards two LEAP scholarships. These full-tuition scholarships are awarded to area Hispanic high school graduates or GED graduates to assist with the financial expenses of attending Northwest Technical Institute the following school year. The scholarship will pay for NTI tuition expenses for a diploma program of the student’s choice.
The first Friday in May
The scholarship may be used for any NTI program; however, being a scholarship recipient does not ensure placement in competitive programs. Prospective students must be accepted into a diploma program at which time the scholarship will be applied towards tuition costs.
This scholarship pays for the tuition expenses of attending NTI for the entire program, regardless of the number of semesters of a particular program. It does not cover fees, texts or course requirements such as scrubs, tools, etc.
WHETHER 1 TIME AWARD OR RENEWABLE
The LEAP Scholarship is not renewable because it covers the entire program’s tuition.
HOW SCHOLARSHIP IS AWARDED
The LEAP Coordinator will meet with student directly to notify him/her of receiving a scholarship award. Student will sign an acknowledgement for the acceptance of the award.
