South Central College’s 3rd Annual Technical Letter of Intent Signing Day will take place on Thursday, February 15 from 11 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. at the college’s Faribault and North Mankato Campuses. The event is part of National Technical Letter of Intent Signing Day, which is held throughout the country each year to honor students entering a technical field. Just like NCAA collegiate athletics signings, participants will ink their intentions to potentially start a technical program at South Central College in Fall 2018.
This year at Signing Day, South Central College will award $50,000 in scholarships. Interested individuals should visit SCC’s Signing Day Webpage to register to participate in Signing Day and apply for the scholarships by February 1.
There will be two types of scholarships awarded at Signing Day:
Minnesota Workforce Development Scholarships: In 2017, the Minnesota legislature designated funds for students pursuing college programs in the following high demand career areas: Advanced Manufacturing, Agriculture, Healthcare Services and Information Technology. South Central College will award 16 of these $2,500 scholarships.
SCC Campus Foundation Scholarships: Thanks to the generosity of contributors, Signing Day participants will also have the opportunity to receive a scholarship from SCC’s Faribault and North Mankato campus foundations.
South Central College offers a wide variety of technical career and professional programs in the areas of Arts and Communications, Agribusiness, Advanced Manufacturing, Allied Health, Nursing, Building and Design, Human Services and Transportation. Details on the specific programs in these areas are also available on the Signing Day Webpage.
