The OTC Foundation, the fundraising arm of Ozarks Technical Community College, has agreed to provide up to $25,000 to help defray the potential A+ scholarship shortfall announced by the Missouri Department of Higher Education in December 2014. A limited number of scholarships, which will cover the one credit hour shortfall, are now available to OTC students who participate in the A+ program. The application will be available online through Wednesday, Jan. 14.
“We are extremely grateful to the OTC Foundation for helping our A+ scholarship students achieve access to the education promised to them,” said Dr. Hal Higdon, chancellor of Ozarks Technical Community College. “The state of Missouri made this promise to our students several years ago. I’m hopeful the legislature and governor will fully fund the program before April so these OTC Foundation funds can be allocated toward unrestricted scholarships.”
