WCC Foundation Scholarship

Each year, the WCC Foundation gives more than $600,000 in scholarships to over 1,000 students. High school seniors and current WCC students can apply. The Foundation awards scholarships based on a combination of financial need and merit.

The scholarship amount is based on the number of credit hours you plan to take during the semester:

  • 12 hours or more: $1,000
  • 9-11 hours: $750
  • 6-8 hours: $500
  • 1-5 hours: $250

The scholarship application deadlines are:

  • The Fall Semester deadline has been extended to October 1
  • Winter Priority Deadline October 10
  • Spring Priority Deadline February 10

To apply for the scholarship, you must:

  • Submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and demonstrate financial need
  • Be a U.S. citizen or an eligible non-citizen
  • Have at least a 2.0 grade point average in classes relevant to your area of study. If you’re a new student, ask your instructor to forward your interim grades or submit your high school transcripts

You fill out the WCC Foundation Scholarship Application online. It requires a personal statement of 250 words or less. The statement should discuss your academic and career goals and any special circumstances that make you deserving of a scholarship. Before you fill out the application, you should write the statement and get it ready to cut and paste because you only have 30 minutes to complete the form.

A letter of recommendation is highly recommended and may be submitted to the WCC Foundation office, Room SC 304. It can also be dropped off at the Financial Aid office, Room SC 205 or emailed to scholarships@wccnet.edu.

You can receive the scholarship more than once, but you need to reapply each semester. The only exception is that you can apply for fall and winter semesters at the same time. To be considered for a scholarship renewal, you must maintain a cumulative pace of completion of at least 67% with a 2.0 GPA.
