***Given the growing concerns around COVID-19, we are saddened to share that we’ve made the difficult decision to cancel the Donor Reception scheduled for Wednesday, April 8. This was a tough call to make – the Donor Reception is one of our favorite ways to celebrate student achievement — but we need to prioritize the health and safety of everyone who participates in the event. Please be advised that scholarships are in no way affected by this event cancellation, nor by recent changes to instruction for the semester.
Thank you for your patience and understanding during this unprecedented time. Please do not hesitate to reach out if we can answer any questions or be of assistance.***
Each year, the OTC Foundation hosts their annual Donor Reception to honor those who support the mission of OTC by providing scholarships to students. This event is also a celebration of the students who earn these scholarships. The scholarship recipients, selected by a committee made up of various members of faculty and staff throughout Ozarks Technical Community College, demonstrate a past excellent academic performance and a promising future.
Annually, the OTC Foundation awards over $300,000 in scholarships, to over 300 students. The Donor Reception, held at the Old Glass Place, provides the opportunity for these students to meet their donors and share their story of impact. It also provides the donor the opportunity to share why they decided to start a scholarship at OTC.
