WCC Excellence Scholarship

Each year WCC offers Excellence Scholarships worth $3,000 ($1,500 each semester for fall and winter) to graduates of any high school.

This scholarship rewards excellence in any area. For example, you may excel in your classes, in school or community activities, playing a sport, being an artist, helping your family, at overcoming obstacles to achieving your dreams, or another area that’s unique to you.
