The deadline is March 15 to apply for Walters State Community College scholarships for the 2013-14 year. Hundreds of scholarships are awarded each year. Some are based on need while others are based on merit. Students receive Walters State scholarships in addition to state HOPE Lottery scholarships or other sources of aid.
Academic performance scholarships are chosen based on grades. Walters State Foundation scholarships are chosen by the criteria established by donors. Applying for a scholarship does not commit a student to attending Walters State. Scholarship notices are sent out in the spring. At that time, students have the chance to accept or decline the scholarship.
