Returning Student Scholarships

Eligibility

To determine which scholarships you are eligible for, complete the online questionnaire. (The information from the questionnaire will be saved and can be used for your scholarship application.)

To receive a UW-WC scholarship, you must attend the UW-Washington County campus.  For each scholarship, half of the amount is awarded in fall and the remaining half is awarded in the spring. Eligibility requirements and application guidelines must be met each semester of the award. 

Scholarship Application

Scholarship applications for returning UW-WC students for the 2014/15 academic year will be available in December. Only one application is needed and you will be considered for all scholarships for which you are eligible.

Scholarship Workshops

The Washington County Campus Foundation will host several scholarship workshops in January for awards for 2014/15 year. You will spend an hour - determining which scholarships you are eligible for and completing an application.

Scholarship Ceremony

All returning students who receive a scholarship are expected to attend the Fall Convocation Ceremony on September 26, 2013. Parents are also welcome to attend. Convocation recognizes top student achievement and allow donors, students and faculty to meet.
