CTE Scholarship Awards Banquet

ctelogoStudents to Receive Scholarships at Career and Technical Education Banquet

On Tuesday, April 19, 2016, the 30th Annual Career and Technical Education (CTE) Scholarships and Tuition Awards Banquet will take place at Salt Lake Community College. This banquet is a longstanding tradition used to honor CTE students throughout the state who have been selected to receive a scholarship and tuition award from a postsecondary institution in Utah.

Each award recipient is one of 214 applicants who applied for a CTE Scholarship and Tuition Award. At the banquet, 102 scholarships will be awarded to high school CTE seniors for up to one year’s tuition at a postsecondary institution.

By the year 2020, two out of three jobs will require some postsecondary education and training. CTE is an essential component in filling these job openings. The jobs of today require advanced skills and technical training. Students wanting to stay competitive in the job market need specific training, education, and skills to compete successfully.

Utah is working to achieve the goal of 66 percent of adults holding a postsecondary certificate or a degree by the year 2020. Each student receiving a scholarship today will have an advantage not only in furthering his/her education, but in attaining a postsecondary certificate or degree through his/her hard work and perseverance.

Who: 102 high school students in Career and Technical Education programs across the state. Students will be accompanied by their parent/guardian.
