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.
