Kick Start Scholarship Program
North Branch Area Public Schools and Pine Technical and Community College are proud to offer the Kick Start Scholarship, available to all North Branch Area High School seniors eligible for free and reduced lunch.
With the support of grants and private donations, all seniors eligible for free and reduced lunch have the opportunity to complete the first year of education at Pine Tech. free of charge. As well as a free year of tuition, students will receive a $1,000 stipend toward expenses during that first year.
Pine Tech. will also assist eligible students with the Accuplacer assessment, financial aid paperwork, and even help with career planning.
To find out if your student is eligible, go to www.isd138.org/Page/143; complete and submit the free and reduced lunch application found on the main page. It is not required families participate in the free and reduced lunch program to make use of this scholarship, only that they are eligible for the service.
