Edward Waters College Scholarships


The Office of Financial Aid is pleased to announce the availability of both merit and need-based scholarships to students who qualify.

The Edward Waters College Scholarship/Grant-In-Aid programs are designed to assist students with offsetting the direct costs of education (Tuition, Fees, and On-campus room and board). The Following awards will be made after all other financial aid has been determined.  The EWC scholarship and Grant-in Aid programs are not designed or intended for students to make a financial profit or generate a student refund, rather only to pay for direct college expenses not met by other forms of assistance.
