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 September (fall) and February (spring) each year and the process is entirely online.

The Spring 2024 scholarship application is now closed. Award notifications will go out via SWC emails April 19th, 2024. 

The Fall 2024 scholarship cycle will open September 1, 2024.

When signing up or signing in, DO NOT USE Apple or Google Sign In. Please only select the BLUE “Sign up” or “Sign in” option.
