The OTC Foundation offers privately funded scholarships, with a variety of requirements for each award defined by the donor. Each year, the Foundation awards more than $650,000 in scholarship assistance to hundreds of OTC students with financial need. How it works.

Prior to applying for a Foundation scholarship, students should complete a FAFSA. For questions about your FAFSA, visit Financial Aid.

If you have any questions, please contact the Foundation Office at 417-447-2651 or foundation@otc.edu.
