The NMC Student Sponsorship Program
NMC offers numerous student sponsorships through our NMC Student Sponsorship Program. This program will allow selected applicants the opportunity to earn a two-year Associates Degree in Diesel Technology. The sponsorship program provides funds to cover tuition and book fees. Additionally, students who are accepted into the NMC Sponsorship Program receive a Student Tool Set and Cabinet to help begin their career path.The two-year sponsorship support is worth over $15,000 to the selected students. NMC believes this program will enable the students to be prepared for a long-term career (not just a job) at NMC. In addition to the above assistance, NMC will also offer the students summer intern positions that will allow them to apply hands-on skills at one of NMC's 5-Star certified facilities.
The NMC sponsorships will be for the 2014-2016 associate degree school years. In order to qualify for the sponsorships, applicants must:
Visit the Central Community College campus at Hastings
