Scholarships from organization in Olathe and the Greater Kansas City Area.
Institute of Science and Technology ongoing

50%-100% of tuition

(Tuition is $3,600 per semester)

The Institute of Science and Technology offers scholarships to reduce or eliminate the financial burden ($3,600 per semester) of earning a certificate. Scholarships are funded through charitable contributions from local businesses to increase the number of students entering careers where there is a shortage of qualified professionals in the Kansas City region.

Rather than evaluating scholarship applicants based on GPA, IST looks for candidates who are serious about completing the program and intend to enter a career in their field of training. Subject to available funds, students are permitted to keep their scholarship so long as they maintain passing grades and attendance.
