    (CEDAR CITY, Utah) - Southwest Applied Technology College presented three scholarships, totaling $3,000, to adult students in the Professional Truck Driving and Welding Technology programs. The three scholarships were funded by the generosity of the Southern Utah Trucking Association.

    Program Coordinator, David Terry shared, “We are able to present these scholarships and support the students, because of our long-standing relationship with SUTA.” The two organizations have partnered and presented scholarships for over ten years. Often the scholarship is the sole means of financial support the students are qualified to receive and become the deciding factor in enrollment.

    James Mullenaux, Director of Student Services said, “A major focus of our missions serving adults seeking job and career upgrades.” Mullenaux went on to explain that these working students face unique challenges of scheduling and financing. “Juggling your current work and family schedules is tough enough. Toss on top HOW to pay for school and you have quite the hurdle.” The campus offers Enrollment and Financial Aid counseling for all new students and a Student Success Counselor to support students through their program.

    SWATC offers 10+ programs that qualify for federal financial aid, multiple campus and third-party scholarships including a campus funded 222nd Family Scholarship and 26+ programs that qualify for veteran’s benefit use.
