Did someone say scholarships?

A few important announcements from the Financial Aid Office…

GardenWe are excited that with the help of our excellent web team, we have made major changes to the donor-sponsored scholarship application for the 2014-15 academic year. We believe this new application process will work well for the students and will also streamline the award selection process for earlier notification.

Students can access the application through the Financial Aid webpage under the Scholarships tab and will be required to use their Whitworth log-in to fully access the application.  Whitworth University is blessed with generous donors who establish scholarships that assist students to meet their educational costs here at Whitworth. The scholarships have varying criteria and award amounts vary, but are typically in the $1,000-$2,000 range!

Please encourage your student to complete this donor-sponsored scholarship application! The submission deadline date for returning students is February 1, 2014.

Speaking of scholarships… the Financial Aid Office also maintains an Outside Scholarship Database with many scholarships listed that your student may qualify to apply for.  Many of the deadlines for these scholarships are between the months of January – April, so now is the time to submit those scholarship applications!
