2016-17 APPLICATION 2016-17 GUIDELINES

Improving the quality of rural life by providing more educational opportunities for technical college students is just one of the reasons the Wisconsin Rural Opportunities Foundation (WROF) has partnered with the Wisconsin Technical College System (WTCS) to offer $17,000 in scholarships to WTCS students for the 2016-17 school year.

Designed to defray the costs for full-time and part-time students in Nursing or Agriculture programs, Blackhawk Technical College (BTC) students in the Agribusiness Specialist, Agribusiness/Science Technology, Farm Business and Production Management, Nursing or Nursing Assistant programs are all eligible to apply for awards of $500 each.

A total of 34 scholarships will be available for 2016-17.  BTC students can now apply for the awards by filling out the application located at the top of this page.  The 2016-17 guidelines are also available for students to review.  Applications must be completed and submitted to the BTC Financial Aid Office no later than December 9, 2016.

Scholarship awards will be determined by the Wisconsin Rural Opportunities Foundation, Inc.  Selected students will be notified in January and should receive the funds during the spring semester of 2017.
