Scholarships

Scholarships play a key role in the financial aid offered to more than 95 percent of Wilson College students. Many of these endowments and funds exist because of the generosity of our alumnae, their families and friends of the college.

Scholarships make a significant difference in our ability to attract new students, retain accomplished scholars and increase Wilson's capacity to prepare students well for the complex world they face upon graduation.

Students do not need to complete a separate application for most of the scholarships listed below.
Students who file a FASFA and meet specific qualifications will be considered for these awards.  Only the Competitive Scholarships require a separate application.
 

Competitive Scholarships - applications sent to admitted students

  • Hagop Bogigian Scholarship - Established from the estate of Hagop Bogigian, this full tuition scholarship is awarded to students of Armenian descent with a preference for citizens of Armenia. These awards are renewable for up to 4 years while attending Wilson College.

  • The Curran Scholarships - Strong students with a proven history of service to community and/or church are invited to apply for Curran Scholarships. These renewable awards range from a minimum of $4,000 for freshmen up to $7,000 for upperclassmen. The amount is based on the student's eligibility from need-based work-study and student loan programs. Curran Scholars complete a 260-hour volunteer service requirement each academic year and take two classes in religion and/or philosophy while at Wilson College. In addition, recipients must attain at least a 2.0 cumulative grade point average after their freshman year and at least a 2.5 cumulative grade point average every year thereafter. A student who receives a Curran Scholarship will not also receive a work study award or a TASC Scholarship. Applications are available from the Office of Admissions to students who are not receiving Presidential or Dean's Merit Scholarships. The deadline for application is March 1.   

  • TASC (The Alumnae-Student Contract) -Well-qualified fulltime undergraduates who otherwise may not be able to attend Wilson receive loans from a fund subsidized by alumnae, foundations, and other friends of the College. Awards are based on potential for leadership, academic merit, and character. Students selected as TASC Scholars receive $1,500 per academic year and, after graduation, repay $300 (interest-free) for each year they received TASC assistance. TASC Scholars who do not graduate from Wilson repay all TASC money received. Applications, due no later than March 1, are available in the Admissions Office. TASC cannot be combined with a Curran award. TASC Scholars must maintain satisfactory academic progress.

  • Class of 1952 Scholarship in Liberal Arts, Sciences and Education - The Wilson College Class of 1952 will extend a $1,000 scholarship to a first time freshman or transfer applicant who intends to receive teacher certification in one of the following fields: Elementary Education or Secondary Education in Biology, Chemistry, English, Environmental Studies, Foreign Language, Mathematics, or Social Studies as well as students who plan to major in one of the Liberal Arts or Sciences. Candidates should have at least a 3.0 cumulative GPA in their high school work. The scholarship is for one year only. The deadline for application is March 1.
