Ott
This Go Local Scholarship is made possible by and in cooperation with the: Ott Family, Tooele Education Foundation & Tooele Technology College

Go Local scholarships are being awarded to senior students graduating from Dugway High School at the end of the 2019 - 2020 school year. It is hoped that Go Local scholarships will serve as an incentive to students desiring to continue their education locally here in Tooele County.

With the presence of Tooele Technology College, students can stay at home and become well qualified for the workforce without leaving the community. This presents substantial savings to many students in their pursuit of higher education.

The “Go Local” scholarship will be in the amount of $500 and must be used by the award-winning student to attend the Tooele Technical College. One scholarship is being awarded by the Ott Family to a student from Dugway High School.
 
DEADLINE: March 20, 2020
