Northeast Iowa Community College to offer $500 scholarships to high-tech manufacturing students

Northeast Iowa Community College (NICC) recently announced it will offer $500 scholarships for Iowa high school seniors who will attend NICC and want to train for jobs in the high-tech manufacturing industry. 

Elevate Iowa, a statewide marketing effort that encourages careers in advanced manufacturing, will help fund the $500 scholarships at all 15 of the state’s community colleges, NICC said.

Students can apply for the scholarship if they want to train to become welders, computer-assisted machinist technicians or electromechanical specialists. Students who plan to study engineering technology, heating and air conditioning and industrial maintenance can also apply.

Elevate Iowa, which is funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Employment & Training Administration, operates under the direction of 15 Iowa community colleges, the Iowa Association of Business and Industry, private manufacturers, Iowa Department of Education, Iowa Advanced Manufacturing Consortium and the Iowa Department of Workforce Development.
