ACTC scholarship priority application deadline April 1

ASHLAND — April 1 is the priority application deadline for fall 2019 scholarships at Ashland Community and Technical College. ACTC offers dozens of scholarships to help deserving area residents pay for their education. Last year, more than 200 scholarships totaling $201,448 were awarded.

At ACTC, about 80 percent of students receive some sort of financial aid and scholarships are part of the financial aid package.

Applicants need to apply for admission to ACTC, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and fill out a scholarship application form. The general scholarship application form is good for most ACTC scholarships, and there are also applications for special scholarships for students in specific fields.

Scholarship applications are on the web at ashland.kctcs.edu under Costs and Financial Aid and the FAFSA is at fafsa.ed.gov. For more information on scholarships or financial aid, call 606-326-2198.
