Free money? Yes, please. Scholarships are a well-known form of gift aid that doesn’t require repayment. We consider a variety of factors when awarding them, including academic achievement, talent, leadership, geographical location, field of study, or financial need. WSCC students can benefit from multiple sources of scholarships, including institutional scholarships as well as WSCC Foundation scholarships.
