MITS Annual Scholarship

Support - Trust - Goals

Since 2018, MITS has been giving back to our communities through four tuition-free scholarships to outstanding candidates who need assistance.

In 2020, we received a large number of applications and the quality of the submissions was impressive. The personal statements and the letters of recommendation we read were truly inspiring.

Thank you, everyone!
