Workforce Tuition Scholarship

Workforce Tuition Scholarships are funded with income from OACCS on-line certification courses. Funds are managed by the Workforce Tuition Scholarship Foundation, a non-profit organization whose sole purpose is to manage and distribute this scholarship money.

The recruitment for our Workforce Tuition Scholarship Foundation (WTSF) kicked-off in May 2016 and the scholarship program is available to all students who are attending or will be enrolling in one of our Member Schools.

A total of $50,000 in scholarship monies are available, ranging from $600 to $2,500, depending on the type of program the applicant is, or will be, enrolling in.  This year’s scholarship breakdown and distributions are reflected as follows:

  • 5 Certificate Scholarships at $600 each

  • 14 Degree Scholarships at $2,500 each
