I am not an honor student, will I still be considered for a scholarship?

Yes. Many CWI scholarships don't require a specific grade point average (GPA). However, it's important to remember that all are competitive. CWI has established a universal requirement that all applicants who are currently enrolled at CWI must meet or exceed CWI academic requirements for Satisfactory Academic Progress. (See CWI Catalog or Student Handbook for more information).

I applied for scholarships last year; do I need to reapply?

Yes. Scholarship applications are reviewed and awards are determined on an annual basis. Prior applications are not retained for evaluation in later years.

I'm enrolled as a part-time student, can I still receive a scholarship?

Certain CWI scholarships are designated specifically for part-time students. Part-time is defined as less than 12 credit hours per semester. (Note: All CWI scholarships require that you are enrolled in a minimum of 6 credit hours per semester.)

Many scholarships list financial need as a criterion, how is financial need determined?

Your financial need is determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and your cost of attendance at CWI. Your signature on the CWI online application permits the Foundation Office to obtain financial need information from One Stop Student Services.

May I use my CWI Foundation scholarship at another school?

No. CWI scholarships are ONLY for use at CWI. CWI scholarships may not be used for dual enrollment and are non-transferable.

Some scholarships have a different application deadline or indicate "deadline to be announced". Do I need to submit a separate application for those scholarships?

No, you may apply for all scholarships with one application. However, recipients of scholarships with alternate deadlines will not be announced until after their respective deadlines.

What types of classes may I take using my scholarship?

Most CWI credit courses are eligible. Professional/personal development classes are not included. There are also several scholarships for apprenticeships programs offered by Business Partnerships / Workforce Development.

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.
