Monetary awards are based on grade point average,need, interest, volunteerism and dedication from the applicants for undergraduate and graduate degrees as indicated on our Scholarships page. Our Links and Resources page offers additional sites for scholarship availability with descriptions and deadlines. Awards have ranged from $1000 to $20,000 annually. HWC awards over 50 scholarships annually and students are presented at the annual HWC Scholarship Benefit Luncheon.
