Available to Out of State high school, GED, and home school students who graduate with their class and enroll full time (12 credit hours) at NWC the fall semester after graduation. To qualify, high school graduates must have a final GPA between 3.5 and 4.0, GED recipients must have scored at least a 575, and homeschooled recipients must have at least a 25 ACT score. The scholarship is available for up to four consecutive semesters (at the original award amount) if full-time enrollment and 3.5 semester GPA is maintained. If students do not maintain the 3.5 semester GPA, but have at least a 2.5 semester GPA the award will be decreased to $400/semester. If students do not have at least a 2.5 semester GPA scholarship eligibility will be lost and cannot be regained. Returning students must complete the online scholarship application to renew scholarship eligibility for second year.
