Careers That Work!
Celebrating the Class of 2016!
The Northwest Career Colleges Federation thanks all of the high schools and member colleges that participated in the 2015 Careers That Work! scholarship program. For the 2015 graduating class, 255 students were awarded the scholarship and are on their way to the career of their choice. Congratulations!
About the Scholarship
The Careers That Work! program was launched in 1999. Each year, every high school in Idaho, Oregon, and Washington (public and private)are given five $1000 tuition scholarships to award to graduating students headed to one of the participating career colleges.
Seniors awarded the Careers That Work! by their high school are not restricted to colleges within their home state. That means seniors graduating in Idaho, Oregon or Washington may be awarded the scholarship for attendance at any participating private career college in any of those three states.
Scholarship recipients are identified and awarded by the high school. The high school must complete the award process via the online application found on this page, to the left.
Scholarships are tentative, pending the student’s acceptance for admission and commencement of study at the college. If accepted, the scholarship will be credited to the student’s tuition, generally in equal disbursements during their first academic year, in accordance with the college’s scholarship award policy. Students should talk with their college to determine when their scholarship will be applied.
The 2016 Careers That Work! scholarship may be awarded effective November 15, 2015, for any student graduating with the 2016 class.
All awards must be submitted online by the high school. Awards submitted without complete information will be rejected until a completed award record is received.
