CTE Program Scholarships

There are a limited number of FULL TUITION and PARTIAL TUITION scholarships available to qualified students majoring in one of the disciplines of Career & Technical Education. The criteria is the same as above except students must be a declared major in one of the Career and Technical Education Department programs and have either a 3.0 GPA for full tuition or 2.5 GPA for partial tuition scholarships.

Free Tuition for High School Students

High school students can take tuition-free CTE classes at Cowley College! The Kansas Board of Regents will pay for the tuition so that students can gain the training needed to enter a profession, and in many cases, earn an industry-recognized credential. Students will need to purchase textbooks and may incur some small fees (tools, background checks as required, supplies, etc.)
