COLUMBUS—State Representative Bill Reineke (R-Tiffin) today joined Terra State Community College to announce a new scholarship for 2018 high school graduates, the Workforce Demand Scholarship.


With this scholarship, the institution will provide for up to an Associate’s Degree tuition-free for students majoring in a high-demand job field, such as manufacturing engineering, health information technology, computer systems, and more. The scholarship will pay the remaining cost for tuition and other fees after state and federal grants and other scholarships are applied.


“Workforce continues to be a serious issue for the 88th House District,” said Reineke. “This scholarship program provides an amazing opportunity for constituents to learn new skills that will set them on an in-demand career path, with little to no debt. I’m extremely proud of Terra State for offering this type of scholarship.”


To be eligible for the Workforce Demand Scholarship, students must graduate high school in 2018, complete the scholarship application by March 1, complete the FAFSA, and develop an academic plan and register for classes by June 15, 2018.
