A scholarship is considered a gift of money to assist a student in financing their higher education. The requirements and amount available for individual awards vary, and many do not require the student to be financial aid eligible.

Each year, through generous contributions from donors, Southwestern College offers a wide variety of scholarships for enrolled students. The application period is during October (fall) and February (spring) each year and the process is entirely online.

The fall scholarship application period is September 1 - 30, 2020 
We have nearly 100 scholarships, worth more than $200,000, available for students during the academic year!
