CTE Scholarships 2015



True or False:  Scholarships are only available to students who are attending 4 year colleges or universities.  FALSE!!!

The CTE Scholarships offered through the Utah State Office of Education are some of the best scholarships out there, and they are offered specifically to students who are planning to attend two years or less of college or students who are planning to teach in a CTE area. The CTE Scholarships and Tuition Awards are for outstanding Career and Technical Education (CTE) students, and cover up to one year of tuition. Eligible applicants have a 1:2 odds of receiving an award. Would you spend four to five hours compiling a portfolio to receive well over $1,500? Do the math.  What is the potential hourly payback for preparing and applying?

Last year, three students from THS received CTE Scholarships:

Ashton Hubbard-WSU
Destiny Nelms-SLCC
Shailee Peterson-SLCC

The  funds for these awards come from various postsecondary institutions around the state, including the TATC in Tooele.  The approximate number of CTE scholarships offered from each institution follows in parenthesis.
