Most students could use some help paying for college. Weatherford College has several different types of scholarship opportunities to assist you.
WC Foundation Scholarships
The WC Foundation provides many general academic scholarships for our students. Don’t have a 4.0 GPA? Don’t worry! Different scholarships are earmarked for different types of students based on many factors: academic history, work ethic, community service, specific geographic areas, etc. We encourage all WC students to apply for foundation scholarships.
WC Scholarships is our simple online system that will automatically match you to all WC Foundation scholarships for which you are eligible. This means you just complete one application to apply for all WC Foundation Scholarships!
To apply for scholarships, students must have a WC ID number. If you are a first-time WC student, apply to the college before applying for scholarships.
For the 2022-23 academic year, the scholarship application will open on January 24, 2022. Priority deadline will be March 25 and the final deadline to apply is June 1, 2022. Scholarships are awarded in the spring and summer for the following fall and spring semesters.
A list of scholarship funds can be found here.
