Apply for Scholarships

Need assistance funding your education? Scholarships can help!

Bates Technical College Foundation scholarships can provide financial assistance for educational expenses, including:

  • Tuition
  • Exams
  • Books and tools
  • Program supplies

If your financial aid package doesn’t cover all of your tuition, you have student loans or are a self-pay student, the Foundation can help you to focus on your education by relieving financial burdens. If you need assistance covering emergency-related financial hardship (unpredicted situations), please apply to our emergency aid program.
