Careers That Work! Scholarship
Celebrating the Class of 2024!

The Northwest Career Colleges Idaho thanks all of the high schools and member colleges that participated in the 2023 Careers That Work! scholarship program. For the 2023 graduating class, 74 Idaho students were awarded the scholarship and are on their way to the career of their choice. Congratulations!

About the Scholarship

The Careers That Work! program was launched in 1999 in Washington.  Each year, every high school in Idaho, Oregon, and Washington (public and private) are given five $1000 tuition scholarships ($500 tuition scholarships are available for programs taking less than six months to complete) to award to graduating students headed to one of the participating career colleges.

Seniors awarded the Careers That Work! by their high school are not restricted to colleges within their home state.  That means seniors graduating in Idaho, Oregon, or Washington may be awarded the scholarship for attendance at any participating private career college in any of those three states.

Scholarship recipients are identified and awarded by the high school. The high school must complete the award process via the online application found on this page, to the right.

Scholarships are tentative, pending the student’s acceptance for admission and commencement of study at the college. If accepted, the scholarship will be credited to the student’s tuition, generally in equal disbursements during their first academic year, in accordance with the college’s scholarship award policy. Students should talk with their college to determine when their scholarship will be applied.

2024 Scholarships

The 2024 Careers That Work! scholarship may be awarded effective October 1, 2023, for any student graduating with the 2024 class.

All awards must be submitted online by the high school. Awards submitted without complete information will be rejected until a completed award record is received.
