New Hampshire Tech Council scholarships get boost
Students pursuing degrees in tech-related fields in New Hampshire will now be eligible for more scholarship money, thanks to an agreement between the New Hampshire High Tech Council and the state’s public colleges and universities.
The chancellors of the University System of New Hampshire and the Community College System of New Hampshire recently signed a memorandum agreeing to contribute matching funds to the tech council’s Kocher Scholarship Program.
The agreement will enable the council to award more scholarships at higher amounts. Awardees now will receive $4,000 scholarships. Applications will be accepted for the next round of funding from Jan. 1 to Feb. 28.
