Sign in, using your WCTC login information, to complete your General Application. DO NOT USE INTERNET EXPLORER AS YOUR BROWER. USE CHROME OR ANOTHER BROWSER. Scholarship opportunities will be automatically matched after you complete the General Application. Qualifying for any scholarship does not guarantee you will receive it. If you receive a scholarship, the award amount(s) listed may differ from what you receive. You will ONLY be notified via your WCTC email if you have been selected to receive the scholarship. You must accept the scholarship and attach a Thank You letter that is forwarded to the donor. Your scholarship will not be disbursed to you until a Thank You letter is received. You will NOT be notified if you do NOT receive a scholarship, only if you have been selected for a scholarship.

Requirements to apply:

  • You must be enrolled in six (6) or more credits for the upcoming semester

Preferred deadline for Fall semester is June 30th. Overall application deadline for the academic year Fall/Spring is October 31st. Priority will be given to early applicants. Only one application is needed for the academic year.

Helpful Hints: Please take time in completing the general application. The essay questions should be answered using complete sentences, not as if you are texting. The answers should be a minimum of 75 words to a maximum of 500 words. The quality of your answer is most important. We highly recommend that you attach a resume. We also highly recommend that you provide two references. If you are a current WCTC student, one reference from an instructor here at WCTC, and one from an employer, if possible. If you are a new student, then one reference from a previous teacher and one from an employer. Although attaching a resume and providing references are not required but highly recommended, they will enhance your eligibility to receive a scholarship.
