         FREE TUITION / IOWA LAST-DOLLAR SCHOLARSHIP

Iowa needs people like you to fill exciting jobs in growing industries. To help keep Iowa moving forward, you can get free tuition for programs that lead to high-demand jobs and good-paying careers. This is not a needs based scholarship. Earn a one-year or two-year degree—all with free tuition.

The application to determine if you qualify for the Last Dollar Scholarship is your FAFSA. Questions regarding the Last Dollar Scholarship can be directed to the NCC Financial Aid Office at finaid@nwicc.edu or (712) 324-5061.
