Recent legislation has awarded $2,500 scholarships to attract students to enter high growth, high-demand occupations in the areas of manufacturing, health care services, agriculture, information technology, early childhood education, and transportation. Northland Community & Technical College will offer these scholarships to new students coming to Northland in the fall. We believe these targeted scholarships will help answer the demand for highly skilled workers.
