Scholarships


Scholarships are critical to the University’s ability to attract talented students and ensure access to those with financial need. In fact, nearly two thirds of WCU's students depend on financial aid to help them achieve their educational dreams.

As a result, the University is grateful to generous donors who provide scholarship funds and endowments that make student success possible. Last year, over 400 merit and need-based scholarships created and maintained through private donations generated more than $750,000 of student financial aid.

Annual Campaigns











The establishment of the Kendall Davis Memorial Scholarship has been a tremendous way for us to honor our daughter, and to keep her memory alive. For the two of us it was a way to take a tragic event, and make it not only a lasting contribution, but a positive one in Kendall’s memory.”
