Scholarships and Grants
In addition to a comprehensive merit scholarship and grant program, West Virginia Wesleyan offers a few additional scholarship opportunities for students in specific academic disciplines or involved with the United Methodist Church. It is also important to remember that Wesleyan also accepts all outside scholarships, and will consider all outside scholarships as stackable on top of your institutional financial aid award.
At West Virginia Wesleyan, academic scholarships are awarded automatically with your acceptance to the College. Other scholarship programs may require additional action on the student’s part, ranging from initiating contact with coaches, to submitting additional materials. For more information on specific requirements, read below.
Athletes seeking scholarship consideration should submit an application for admission, and be in contact with the coaching staff for her or his respective varsity sport. All athletic scholarship awards are determined by the coaching staff.
