General and Need-Based Scholarships

A general scholarship is an award that is based upon stated criteria.  Students should consider general scholarship award criteria when completing the scholarship application and providing information.

A need-based scholarship is an award that is based upon stated criteria as well as evidence of financial need.  The WKCTC Scholarship Committee considers the FAFSA calculated EFC (expected family contribution) as an indication of financial need.  All students are encouraged to complete a FAFSA and submit a copy of the web confirmation page to the Scholarship Office by the application deadline.  Students who do not submit a FAFSA web confirmation that includes an EFC will not be considered for any scholarship where financial need is indicated.

Please see the Scholarship Opportunities Brochure for a complete listing of general and need-based scholarships.  Scholarship amounts are determined by funding availability.  
NOTE:  Academic scholarships pay for WKCTC credits only.
