Scholarships transform lives
For many students, attending college isn't possible without financial help. Scholarships serve as a gateway to help them achieve a college degree. There is a greater chance that students who apply will actually enroll in classes at Wayne State College if they receive a scholarship.
Scholarships boost athletic programs
Scholarships empower student-athletes to strive for success on and off the field. With generous scholarships, Wayne State College is also able to recruit top student-athletes from around the region. By increasing our athletic scholarships, WSC can become more competitive across all sports.
Scholarships impact the region.
Regional service has always been a significant part of the mission of Wayne State College. With 76% of Wayne State graduates staying in Nebraska, we are committed to meeting the workforce and economic demands of our state and region. Most WSC graduates stay to live and work in the state, supporting the economy and building community here in the region.
"Affordability and scholarships were a big reason why I chose Wayne State. Scholarships also were the reason I committed to participating in the WSC track and field program. Scholarships have allowed me to excel in both academics and athletics. I LOVE being an athlete for Wayne State. I have had a lot of success, which makes me excited to continue to compete and work hard."

“The positive effects of student scholarships help open the doors to the future. For some students, a scholarship means being able to attend courses when they thought a college education was financially out of reach. For others, a scholarshp means the chance to focus more time, effort, and attention on the intellectual pursuits of the program of study and less time on worrying or working to pay for the chance to learn and earn the degree. For yet other students, a scholarship is part of their motivation or a positive, reinforcing reminder that someone believes in them and their abilities. As faculty members interacting with students on a daily basis, we see these and many other benefits accruing to students that simply would not be there if the scholarships did not exist.”
