Scholarships for WV Residents

At WVU Potomac State College, we want the best students – so we look at more than tests and GPAs. We value your hard work and determination too. We have expanded our scholarship tiers to offer even more students the opportunity to earn a WVU degree.

No separate application is necessary for our scholarships. Once you are admitted, you will be reviewed for scholarship eligibility.

Deadline for scholarship eligibility: June 1, 2024 for admission and for submission of updated GPA and test scores.
