MTI Foundation Scholarships
MTI offers a variety of scholarships to qualified applicants. MTI also accepts any scholarships brought in by entering or returning students. Several websites offer lists of scholarships and application processes. REMEMBER: If someone attempts to charge or bill you for a listing of scholarships, chances are it is not a legitimate service. Stay clear of the search services that charge to "find" scholarships for students.
The Incoming Student Scholarship Application period will open spring 2020.
If you are a Build Dakota or Double Edge scholarship recipient, you are ineligible to receive additional MTI Foundation scholarships. If you receive a scholarship award from the MTI Foundation and then become a Build Dakota or Double Edge recipient, your MTI Foundation scholarship(s) will be re-awarded to another applicant.
The following incoming student scholarships are typically available each school year through the MTI Foundation Office.
The Fall Scholarship Application period has ended. Please check back the fall of 2019.
