Scholars Program offers stackable credentials with the goal to produce
highly skilled, competent industrial technicians for employment in STEM
related fields. Students who graduate with this degree will qualify for well-
paying high tech positions. Students may also use this program to transfer
to some four-year schools.
Priority will be given to students enrolled in 15 or more credits, and
students must enroll in a minimum of six credits. Ratcliffe Scholars must

books, supplies and equipment, internships, technology, plus allowances
for housing, transportation, and other living expenses. Funds may not be
used for personal expenses not related to college attendance, such as
entertainment and/or legal fees. Aid will be awarded on a First Come, First
Served basis. Students must complete the FAFSA and submit the attached
Ratcliffe Scholars Application.
