Scholarship Description

The New Hampshire Charitable Foundation is starting a special program to assist New Hampshire students who are interested in a vocational or technical career. The Foundation will provide support to students who need additional training beyond high school to realize their goals. Individual awards will range from $100 to $2,500 depending on the student’s need.

Who Should Apply?
The Career Aid for Technical Students Program (CATS) is designed to help students who are enrolling in any accredited vocational or technical program that does NOT lead to a four-year baccalaureate degree. Candidates may be entering 2 or 3-year degree programs or other, shorter-term technical training programs that lead to an associates degree, a trade license or certification.

Academic excellence is not a factor in selecting candidates for awards; however, we do expect students to demonstrate reasonable achievement and a commitment to their chosen field of study.

Applicants must be:
* A legal NH resident
* A dependent student (under age 24)
* Planning to enroll for at least a half-time course of study at an accredited program.
* Applying for federal financial aid (when available)
* Financially needy
