T- T T+

Outside scholarships (i.e., scholarships awarded from non-governmental sources outside of SOWELA) are a resource that some students use to pay for their education at SOWELA. The scholarships are awarded by third party individuals or companies. Students apply directly to those awarding the scholarship. Please read all of the eligibility requirements for each scholarship before applying. We have made every effort to verify the authenticity of these scholarships however it is important that you do not pay any fees nor give out any personal or financial information when making application.
