Unlock Your Future in IoT
Scholarships Now Available!
In July, 2022, the IoT Talent Consortium (IoTTC) through the efforts of Rockwell Automation’s Michael Cook, and their board made a generous offer to the Wisconsin IoT Council to assume their assets in the form of some white papers and a cash balance of approximately $35,000. This funding will be used to support educational programs in the IoT space.
By October 2022, the transfers were successfully completed, and the members of the IoTTC officially became members of the WIoT Council for a one-year term.
Shortly after, the WIoT Council’s scholarship committee, consisting of Rockwell Automation, UW Green Bay, UW Platteville, UW Milwaukee, Northeast Wisconsin Technical College and Fox Valley Technical College was formed to iron out the criteria for administering the scholarships.
There are two types of scholarships available: Traditional and Non-Traditional.
Non-Traditional scholarships are open to both students and employees who are seeking certifications or completing modules at any Wisconsin Technical College. The only requirement is that the tech college must be a member of the WIoT Council. To see if your company or technical school is a member, check here.
Non-Traditional applicants are for any student or employees seeking certifications or completing modules at any Wisconsin Technical College, provided the tech college is a member of the WIoT Council. To find out if your company or technical school is a member, simply log into the council website to see their membership.
