Welcome to Southwest Tech Foundation's online Scholarship Application!

The Southwest Tech Foundation is proud to offer scholarship opportunities to all current and incoming students in good academic standing that are enrolled in a minimum of 6 credits per semester. See our Scholarship Listings page for a complete list of scholarships available to Southwest Tech students offered through our one general application.

Students with a documentable disability who are enrolled in less than 6 credits must have a plan on file with Disability Services.

Completed applications will consist of the following items:

  • A completed online Scholarship Application.
  • Two completed online recommendation forms from a reference not related to the applicant. Example of a reference - past teacher, current instructor, or employer. Applicants are required to enter email addresses of two references so the recommendation form is sent automatically after you submit your scholarship application.
  • Students applying for the Child Care Scholarship must complete the Child Care Certification Form .

PLEASE NOTE: Section three of the application requires you to answer three short answer questions. It is highly recommended that you prepare these answers prior to starting the application. Grammar, punctuation, and complete sentences will be graded!

Those questions are as follows:

  1. Leadership Activities: What school, professional, and/or civic activities are you currently involved in or have been involved with recently?
  2. Career Objectives: What are your career goals and how does attending Southwest Tech help further your goals?
  3. Financial Need: Please explain your financial need. Include employment situation and any special circumstances.
