MANSFIELD – The North Central State College (NCSC) Foundation announces a new scholarship for Richland County adults pursuing a certificate program at NC State.

These scholarships will help students who plan to train for a career in business, manufacturing, healthcare or public service. Certificates are recognized as a way for students to enter the workforce quickly, with the skills that employers need.

In addition to the new scholarship which assists with tuition, generous donors of the NCSC Foundation have established a fund to assist students who need childcare while enrolled.

This Childcare Stipend is available for students needing childcare due to a job loss, low income, or other factors which could impact their ability to remain in school. This discussion is now part of the admissions process.

NC State, with the support of its Foundation, is helping train employees with the in-demand skills needed in today’s workforce. Employers are eager to welcome graduates from many of the programs available.

For more information, go to, or contact Amanda Sheets, Admissions Director,, or 419-755-5650.
