Careers That Work!
The Northwest Career Colleges Federation thanks all of the high schools and member colleges that participated in the 2012 Careers That Work! scholarship program. For the 2012 graduating class, 539 students are on the path to changing their lives and meeting career goals. Congratulations!
About the Scholarship
The Careers That Work! program makes available to every high school in Oregon, Washington and Idaho (public and private) five $1000 tuition scholarships to award to students each year.
Graduating students awarded the Careers That Work! Scholarship receive a tuition scholarship to pursue an education at a participating private career college in the Northwest. The Program, launched in 1999 to Washington high schools, was expanded in 2008 to Oregon and Idaho. Without the restriction of state borders students are able to select the private career college that meets their career goals. This means that without the restriction of state boarders, students are able to select the career college in any of the three states that meets their career goals!
Scholarship recipients are identified and awarded by the high school. Scholarships are tentative, pending the student's acceptance for admission to the college and commencement of study. 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 2013 Careers That Work! scholarship may be awarded effective October 1, 2012, for any student graduating with the 2013 class.
All awards must be submitted online by the high school. Awards submitted without complete information will be rejected until a complete award record is received.

My high school guidance counselor had signed me up for the Career’s That Work Scholarship and I was notified within two days that I was a recipient. The whole thing is a miracle, without the scholarship I may not have been able to attend school due to an outstanding balance that the scholarship covered. Thanks to Mrs. R. Paquette in the financial aid department for advising me of this, I was able to start school on time.
I am currently in my third sequence of the Medical Assistant Program with a 3.84 GPA. My instructors are very helpful, and so far I am doing well with the Lord’s help in overcoming any obstacles that have come my way. I really appreciate the Careers that Work scholarship committee for approving this scholarship. I hope that other students will be able to have a chance to apply and receive it also.
A grateful student, Andre Filmore
I knew that the scholarship could make a difference in helping my family and I pay for school. I feel like I am one of the lucky ones! “This sort of stuff never happens to me! Having a $1,000 scholarship was a huge weight off my shoulders.”
