Scholarships

The following scholarship programs are only available to full-time, undergraduate day students (for the academic year; please check with Student Academic & Financial Services for summer eligibility).

JWU has adopted an institutional policy, whereby the total of all university funded or administered monies awarded to a single student may not exceed a specified dollar amount during an academic year. This amount is determined prior to each year’s financial aid awarding process.

Students studying through the School of Online and Continuing Education are ineligible for JWU institutional scholarships, JWU institutional grants and JWU institutional awards.
