Church Membership Scholarships

The following list of endowed scholarships is automatically awarded to students based on a software database matching process between the scholarship criteria and the student’s profile information. Therefore, students should not contact Financial Aid and attempt to apply for a scholarship because there is no application process. Some of the endowed scholarships are awarded by faculty during the annual Honors Convocation and those are clearly identified in the list below. 

If a student is awarded one of the listed scholarships, the awarded money will replace any KWC institutional need-based aid the student may be receiving. Some of these scholarships may, in fact, be added on top of other scholarships a student is already receiving from KWC, but the total amount of scholarship/award dollars a student receives cannot exceed the total of direct costs (tuition, fees, room, and board) at Kentucky Wesleyan College.
