Scholarships

The TBAISD Career-Tech Center awards over $20,000 in academic and trades scholarships to students each year.  CTC counselors meet with all seniors to provide an overview of the financial aid process, FASFA application, and explain the process of applying for various regional and CTC scholarships.  These scholarships are posted to the CTC website as they become available, so students are encouraged to check back frequently.

These scholarships are made possible by contributions to the TBAISD Career-Tech Center through the annual CTC Golf Outing and from individuals and community partners across the five-county Grand Traverse region. Thank you!
