Scholarship Directory

Overview

Thanks to the generosity of our many donors, Central Ohio Technical College (COTC) can offer more than 80 different scholarships totaling over $1 million dollars each year!

COTC scholarships are available to recent high school graduates, new, current and returning students.   

Scholarships are awarded based on a variety of requirements or criteria after a student applies to COTC. Things like: academic performance, academic program of study (major), financial need, and geographic location are considered. Requirements can vary scholarship to scholarship and are often determined by the donor who established the scholarship fund.  

Some scholarships require a student to submit a separate application each year. Our scholarship directory makes it easy to find which scholarships require a separate application to be considered.
