Honors Program Scholarships
The Honors Program provides scholarships for outstanding Honors Program members to assist in meeting their educational goals at NWACC. Honors Program scholarships are competitive.
The deadline for the Honors Program scholarship for the 2013-2014 Academic year is Friday, April 26th. Click here to download the application. This scholarship application is separate from the college-wide STARS system. Only Honors Program members are eligible to apply for the Honors scholarship.
Sometimes the college has a "special" scholarship opportunity for the spring, when not all the funds allotted for the fall semester are used. Students will receive an announcement through the college with deadline information if a "special" scholarship opportunity exists.
Board of Trustees Scholarship and AATYC Scholarship.
One student is awarded the scholarship annually. Students are selected from the pool of Golden Eagle recipients each year and must have one year left at NWACC.
