FA 2016 - SP 2017 Alumni Relations Scholarship Application Packet

The UWA Alumni Relations office accepts completed scholarship packets up to the scheduled deadline of April 15th annually. This application is for the combined fall and spring semesters that follow the April 15th deadline. As applications arrive in our office, it is imperative that they are complete. Students must be enrolled full time (12 semester hours; the only exception is nursing students in clinical classes where 9 semester hours is considered full time) and be on campus students. We currently do not have scholarships for online students. Student GPAs will be checked after each fall semester to determine if the scholarship will be renewed for the spring semester.

We do not make checks payable to students; all financial aid is directed through our Financial Aid office and checks are made payable to the UWA Business Office. There are no scholarships for summer semesters; any exception is made only by direction from the President or the Vice President of Institutional Advancement.
