A scholarship is considered a gift of money to assist a student in financing their higher education. The requirements and amount available for individual students varies.
Each year, through generous contributions from donors, we offer more than 150 scholarships totaling approximately $125,000 for students attending Southwestern College. The scholarship application period is during September (fall) and February (spring) each year.
This fall, we will be awarding more than $74,000 in scholarships.
