Snow College Technical Education Scholarships

The third-annual event had such a positive response it had to be moved from its original location to accommodate the demand. Gathered in the Sevier Valley Center, 127 students were joined by parents, CTE teachers, counselors, principals, and Snow College instructors. In all, the school hosted nearly 400 individuals for the awards banquet and ceremony.

Following dinner and the awards ceremony, students were invited to meet college faculty, visit labs, and meet with industry partners in multiple program areas. In addition to the $500 scholarship, every student had the opportunity to earn a “signing bonus”—a tuition waiver given to those who met with the advisors that were on hand to get students ready to register for fall semester. In all, Snow awarded $127,000 in funding for students to continue their education at Snow College.

Progam Focus

Programs of focus from Snow College included Agricultural Technology, Automotive Technology, Composites, Construction Technology and Management, Diesel Technology, Industrial Mechanics, Machine Tool Technology, Welding Technology, Computer Information Systems Networking and Cybersecurity, Business Digital Marketing, Certified Nursing Assistant, and Medical Assisting. Each program area has been identified as a growing industry in the Central Utah Region. These Technical Education programs now offer lower tuition rates, college credit, and short-term certificates.

Industry representatives from Sunroc, Wolverine Fuels, Jensen Air & Refrigeration, and Associated General Contractors of Utah were also on-hand to meet with students. Sunroc provided an additional $500 scholarship to a Diesel Mechanics Pathway participant.

Interim Vice President of Technical Education and Workforce Development Jay Olsen said, “This event is a highlight for Snow’s technical education programs. It is a pleasure to recognize these seniors for their hard work and connect them to faculty and industry partners.”

Follow-up will be done in each high school in partnership with Snow College. School counselors and teachers will work with students to identify the program they want to attend. Advisors from the Student Success office will then meet with students and register them for summer or fall classes.
