Application Guidelines

The NOCE application process is student friendly.

Students need to take the following steps to apply for a scholarship:

  1. Download the application (notice the new application includes an instructor section & signature)
  2. Complete the application on your computer and then save and print for submission
  3. Complete the essay on the computer - save and print it
    Important Note - Each scholarship application must have a different essay. If you apply for more than one scholarship you must write a new essay to answer the specific essay prompts for that essay. Duplicate essays will disqualify a scholarship application.
  4. Collect the required documents.
    • The education plan needs to show classes you have taken, are currently enrolled in – you can ask a leader at one of the NOCE Admissions and Records counters to print this for you. Please add a list of courses you hope to take in the future – the Scholarship Committee will appreciate this.
    • A letter of recommendation from one of your instructors
  5. Clip all your documents together with the application on top and turn it in at one of the three Admissions and Records counters by the Scholarship Application Deadline: March 15, 2019
    Important Note - Incomplete scholarship packets will not be reviewed
