Southwest Technical College (Southwest Tech) announced a $10,000 scholarship donation from Iron County Home Builders Association and a $5,000 scholarship donation from Rocky Mountain Power Foundation. These donations help fund students in need to obtain employable, technical skills.

The Home Builders Association has been a key local partner with Southwest Tech, especially with the growth and training needs in our local community. The Rocky Mountain Power Foundation has also played an integral role in helping Southwest Tech’s scholarship program since its inception. The Southwest Tech scholarship program has assisted hundreds of students to graduate with an accredited certification. 

“Every dollar donated positively impacts the quality of our local workforce. We are very grateful for these two organizations and their donations,” stated Brennan Wood, President of Southwest Tech.

Southwest Tech teaches certificate programs throughout the year and scholarships are awarded on a monthly basis. Scholarship applications and more information can be found at
