College Tuition Assistance for Area High School Graduates
The WITC Promise Scholarship, funded by the WITC Foundation, provides free college tuition for area high school graduates who meet program eligibility requirements. The WITC Promise Scholarship will pay the balance of tuition and fees for eligible students after federal grants, state grants and WITC Foundation Scholarships are applied. Tuition will be covered up to four terms (pending eligibility requirements each term).
