Scholarship Opportunities for 2014-15
Dakota County Technical College has streamlined the scholarship process by using the STARS Online Scholarship Tracking and Review System, which helps match students to scholarships based on answers to a questionnaire that is filled out as part of the online application process. (Please note: Stars Online is NOT related to StarID student accounts.)
Scholarship award amounts range from $500 to $2,500. Scholarships are offered in a number of categories such as program, financial need and academic merit. Each year these scholarships are made possible thanks to the generosity of donations made to the DCTC Foundation.
The deadline to apply for Spring Semester 2015 scholarships is Friday, December 19. Review committees will meet during the month of January and make award selections. Please note that some scholarships require you to fill out the FAFSA form and/or attach your unofficial transcipts (links below).
