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.

High School Seniors (public/private high schools): Your high school counselor will receive a periodic list of applicants. Your counselor will submit and certify your official seventh-semester GPA and your ACT scores (schools using block schedules will provide information as of December 31). Your high school counselor will be asked to submit an official seventh-semester transcript including ACT scores (schools using block schedules should provide a transcript as of December 31).

High School Seniors (home school):
You must print the Counselor Verification Form. This form is available on the scholarship Web site. The verification form must be completed by your administrator. Obtain an official seventh-semester transcript (schools using block schedules should provide a transcript as of December 31) and a copy of your ACT scores from your administrator. All information (counselor verification, transcript, ACT) must be received by the WKCTC Scholarship Office by the stated deadline.
