GENERAL SCHOLARSHIPS FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS

Skills USA Scholarships

Western Tech offers scholarships to the winners of the Skills USA competition (El Paso regional area). High school senior participants who place 1st through 3rd in each category will receive scholarships of:

  • 1st place: 20% off tuition
  • 2nd place: 15% off tuition

  • 2nd place: 7.5% off tuition
  • 3rd place: 5% off tuition

Note: Prospective students who are enrolling cannot be granted more than 50% off tuition in total scholarship awards. 

High School Senior Scholarships

According to federal reports, the vast majority of new jobs in the U.S. do not require a traditional four-year degree but will require training beyond high school. Scholarships aimed at high school seniors encourage them to enter high-tech career training. Secondarily, these programs assist economically disadvantaged students who, although academically capable, may not otherwise be able to fully afford specialized career training. Western Technical College awards five (5) scholarships from each of our eligible programs of study each year to all school districts throughout the Southwest Region. The awarded scholarships are as follows:

  • 1st place: 25% off tuition
  • 2nd place: 20% off tuition
  • 3rd place: 15% off tuition
  • 4th place: 10% off tuition
  • 5th place: 5% off tuition

Note: Prospective students who are enrolling cannot be granted more than 50% off tuition in total scholarship awards.  Deadline to submit the High School Senior Scholarship Application form is April 21, 2020.

CCST (Career Colleges and Schools of Texas) Scholarships

Western Tech participates in the Career Colleges and Schools of Texas (CCST) scholarship program, which is available for high school seniors in both public and private high schools in Texas. The scholarship award is valued at $1,000, and each school receives 10 scholarship certificates per calendar year. The scholarship can be redeemed at participating colleges and universities throughout the state. The selection process is done at each high school and only high school counselor(s) may award a scholarship. The career school and high school counselor are both notified when a scholarship is issued. Scholarship recipients must graduate high school in the same school year (September–June) as the issue date of the scholarship, and the deadline for awarding scholarships is August 31 of the year that the student graduates from high school. Prospects who submit a CCST scholarship that falls outside of the accepted dates will not be eligible for acceptance at WTC.  Please see your Texas high school career center or school counselor for CCST scholarship information.
