OTC Offers Scholarships To Students Impacted By COVID-19


Students taking classes at Ozarks Technical Community College this summer are eligible for a new scholarship.  The college is offering $100,000 in scholarships for students impacted by COVID-19. 

OTC will give out 200 scholarships of $500 each on a first-come, first-served basis for the summer session, which starts June 1.

They’re available to current OTC students as well as students from another college whose semester was interrupted by the pandemic.

These criteria must be met to be eligible:

  • Students must enroll at least six hours at OTC this summer
  • Their spring 2020 semester must have been altered due to classes being moved online; a parent or guardian’s financial situation was negatively impacted; the student’s financial situation was negatively impacted.
