Washtenaw Community College Foundation has partnered with the Kiwanis Club of Ann Arbor to offer scholarships to students graduating from an Ann Arbor public high school and who reside within the Ann Arbor Public Schools District. The Foundation will provide eight scholarships with Huron, Pioneer, and Skyline each receiving two and Community and Pathways each receiving one.
The scholarship is intended to help students attend WCC on a full-time basis. The Kiwanis donation allows Washtenaw Community College Foundation to cover tuition and books for one full school year, an approximate value of $3,500, although eligibility for the Winter semester is dependent on academic performance in the Fall semester.
Applying is easy but the deadline is June 10, 2021 to be eligible for a scholarship to attend WCC during the 2021-22 school year.
To be eligible, a student must have a 2.0 GPA and submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Preference will be given to those in the first generation of their family to attend college. Washtenaw Community College’s school code is 002328. The application requires a personal statement of 250 words or less that describes academic and career goals and special circumstances that make the student a candidate for the scholarship. Letters of recommendation from teachers, counselors, work supervisors and others are encouraged, but not required.
For more information students may contact Shana Barker at the WCC Foundation at Scholarships@wccnet.edu or 734-973-3705.
