Triangle Tech recently announced their 2016 scholarship award recipients. All of these winners have demonstrated outstanding achievement, talent, and leadership qualities. Financial need is not a consideration in determining these awards. Triangle Tech awards one scholarship for each of its Associate in Specialized Technology Degree program offered. This year, there were 70 applicants and 20 of these students received the scholarship to cover 25% of their tuition cost. The winners are selected by an independent committee comprised of individuals representing business, education and government.
