WVU Potomac State College awards over $600,000 in scholarships annually.

WVU Potomac State College rewards your hard work with a variety of scholarships to qualified students, including academic and athletic awards.

Available Scholarships:

WVU Potomac State College offers many scholarships that recognize your achievements and skills. As soon as you are admitted, we evaluate you for our WVU-integrated scholarships which continue if you change campuses to Morgantown. Many institutional scholarships are available and students are automatically reviewed to see if you meet any of the criteria to be offered an institutional scholarship. We also offer athletic scholarships in many sports so talk to our coaches about opportunities.

Scholarship Application Process:

We do not have a separate application for most scholarships so it could not be easier to apply!

To receive priority consideration, please complete the admissions process to Potomac State by May 1. This includes submitting your completed application for admission along with your high school transcript and your ACT/SAT test scores. 

If funding is available, students applying after the priority deadline will receive scholarship consideration.
