Wichita Promise is designed to increase Wichita’s skilled workforce by removing barriers that keep individuals from getting trained. It’s a scholarship program that pays tuition and fees for specific high wage, high demand jobs, provides training, credentials, certifications, personal career coaching by WATC’s Career Services department and a guaranteed interview upon completion.

There is a great need in the Wichita area for a more skilled and experienced workforce to fill local industry positions. With that need, WATC has a desire to eliminate the financial barrier for students wishing to better their life through technical education. The Wichita Promise was formed as a solution to these growing needs in our community.

The WATC Foundation helps to change the lives of students through emergency loans and scholarships thanks to generous community contributions. The WATC Foundation is a 501(c) organization that operates independently from the College. WATC Advancement staff solicit and receive contributions to the Foundation from community contributors to provide students a better life while providing highly-qualified job candidates for the region’s employers. We need your support to create the thriving workforce Wichita deserves.
