Online Scholarship Application

What if I do not know my enrollment plans?

Please make your best assessment of your enrollment plans. Some scholarships have enrollment requirements. If you do not meet enrollment requirements at the time the scholarship is disbursed to your account your scholarship will either be adjusted or denied. Enrollment requirements are listed when you apply for the scholarship. All scholarships have a minimum enrollment requirement of 6 credits.

I am professionally licensed in real estate or have another professional certification that is required for providing a professional service. Does this disqualify me from receiving a scholarship?

This question specifically relates to one scholarship. Students that have prior degrees or professional certifications will be ineligible for one type of scholarship but still be considered for other CWI scholarships.

I have not completed my Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Can I apply for scholarships?

No. Many scholarships have financial need as criteria. For the Scholarship Committee to more accurately review your application please complete the FAFSA before completing your online scholarship application. Scholarship applications without financial information will not be considered for awards.

My intended degree is not listed. Do I qualify for scholarships?

No. Scholarships are only available for the degree types listed. Please check back in the future as new scholarships will be added as they become available.

I am enrolled at both CWI and another institution of higher education. Am I a dual credit student?

No. 'Dual Credit' on the scholarship application refers to high school students taking college credits while in high school.

Which email address should I provide on the online application?

Please use a valid email address that you monitor regularly. Scholarship notifications will be sent to the email address you provide and you are responsible for the timely response to requests sent to the address you provide.

I am enrolled in a Professional Technical Education (PTE) program but it is not listed. Do I still qualify for a scholarship?

Yes, there are several scholarships available for any PTE program. Please select 'My program is not listed' and you will be considered for those general PTE scholarships.

I do not have Internet Explorer 8.0, Mozilla Firefox, or Safari. What should I do?

These browsers are required for the proper function of the online scholarship application. Please visit One Stop Student Services to utilize a CWI computer to complete your online scholarship application if you do not have access to one of these browsers on your personal computer.

I do not have a student ID. What should I do?

Scholarship applicants are required to have a student ID before completing the online scholarship application.

Students taking classes through Business Partnerships / Workforce Development are not issued student ID numbers. Please use the last 7 digits of your Social Security Number in the student ID field.
