Last Dollar Scholarship Available to WITCC Students

Posted on: June 06, 2019

New State Program Will Fill Gap in Financial Aid for High-Demand Credentials  

The new Future Ready Iowa Last-Dollar Scholarship, signed by Gov. Kim Reynolds, on Monday, June 3 will be available to qualified students at Western Iowa Tech Community College for the 2019-20 academic year.

The Last-Dollar Scholarship is intended to cover tuition for students in programs that lead to high-demand jobs in Iowa. If other state and federal programs do not cover the entire cost of tuition for a postsecondary certificate, diploma, or associate degree, the Last-Dollar Scholarship will fill the gap.

To be eligible, new high school graduates must enroll full-time. Adult learners may enroll full- or part-time. All students must file the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid), attend orientation, meet with an advisor, remain continuously enrolled, and make satisfactory academic progress. Students can receive the Last-Dollar Scholarship for up to five full-time semesters or eight part-time semesters. Qualified students will need to reapply each year.

A list of eligible Western Iowa Tech Community College programs will be available on the WITCC website in late June. The deadline for interested students to fill out the FAFSA at FAFSA.gov is August 1.  For questions, contact the Western Iowa Tech Community College Financial Aid Office/Admissions Office at 712-274-6402.
