Scholarships can help students continue learning important skills. The Wisconsin Public Service (WPS) Foundation is once again offering technical college scholarships to area high school seniors.

This is the 58th year of this important program. During that time, the WPS Foundation has donated more than $5.4 million in overall scholarships to help students in Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan continue their education.

Supporting students for six decades

The WPS Foundation offers its technical college scholarships as part of its commitment to strengthening student education. These scholarships help students pursue technical diplomas or associate’s degrees at select northeast and north central Wisconsin schools. Last year, the WPS Foundation awarded $20,000 to 28 students through its technical college scholarships.

Applications now being accepted

The WPS Foundation partners with the Wisconsin Technical College System (WTCS) to provide its technical college scholarships. High school seniors living in the WPS service area are eligible to receive a scholarship if they plan to attend one of six WTCS colleges.

  • Fox Valley Technical College
  • Lakeshore Technical College
  • Northcentral Technical College
  • Nicolet Technical College
  • Mid-State Technical College
  • Northeast Wisconsin Technical College

Scholarships of up to $750 are available. Recipients are selected based on academic achievement, school and community leadership activities, and financial need.

How to apply

Interested students can apply for the technical college scholarships through the Northeast Wisconsin Technical College website. A link to the application is available on the WPS Foundation’s website. Applications will be accepted through April 30.
