Can I apply for a CWI scholarship if I am working toward a certificate and not a degree?

Can I apply for CWI scholarships if I am participating in a Workforce Development apprenticeship program?

Can I be awarded more than one scholarship per semester?

Yes, though multiple awards are not typical. The scholarship committee will usually try to assist as many students as possible. Some donors may request that their scholarship not be awarded to a student receiving other scholarship assistance.

Does the amount I receive in scholarships affect my eligibility for financial aid?

Yes. Scholarships are applied directly to your student account through One Stop Student Services. Your unmet need will be recalculated and, if necessary, your aid package will be adjusted. In most cases, any adjustment will only affect that amount of student loans borrowed.

Applications are reviewed and scored by a committee. All decisions are final.
