Scholarships for the 2021-2022 academic year are available NOW!!!
(A complete FAFSA is required for ALL institutional scholarships. The 2021-2022 FAFSA opened October 1, 2020)
Eastern Wyoming College offers Foundation, institutional and private donor scholarships and activity grants. Students can apply for most scholarships EWC administers via our online scholarship application. Students can apply for Fall, Spring, and Summer scholarships through this application.
To be eligible for any EWC scholarships/activity grants, you must:
- Complete the EWC Application for Admission
- Provide an official high school (or high school equivalency) transcript; a final, official high school transcript with your graduation date must be on file in order for state and federal aid to be disbursed.
- Provide official college transcripts from any other colleges you have attended.
- It is also highly recommended that all students complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Many scholarships require information from the FAFSA to determine need. The FAFSA must be completed every year.
While the majority of scholarships require no special program of study, others are designated for students pursuing a major in areas such as: agriculture, art, business, criminal justice, education, health, history, psychology, welding, etc. Eligibility criteria differ from one scholarship program to another. Criteria from various scholarship programs may relate to GPA, credit hours completed, high school affiliation, county of residence, organization membership or affiliation, enrollment level, etc. Most scholarships require, at a minimum, a GPA of 2.0 and half-time enrollment. See the Financial Aid and Scholarship Guide for a summary of scholarships EWC offers, descriptions and criteria for eligibility for each.

The EWC online Scholarship Application is designed to allow you to quickly enter important data that helps determine what institutional or Foundation scholarships you might be eligible for at Eastern Wyoming College. You may stop at any time during the application process and return to continue/check your data, complete individual application requirements and check on awarding progress. Provide general demographic information, complete some academic and qualification questions and see what scholarships you may be eligible for! Be sure to check back into your account often for new scholarships you might be eligible for that require answering some additional questions.
March 15 is the priority consideration date for scholarship applications (however, highly qualified applicants may be considered for scholarships at any time). Any applications received after the priority date will be considered on a “first-come, first-served” basis. You may continue to update your application and apply for new scholarships throughout the year.
Please note: Summer semesters are listed as a separate option on the application, so if you wish to be considered for summer scholarships, you must select that option (and any other semesters/years that you wish to be considered for scholarships).
