We are forever grateful for your commitment to Wayne State College.

Thank you for your support!

Together, our Wildcat Family gave $35,100,286 during our Invest-Empower-Transform Campaign for Wayne State College -- more than any fundraising campaign in our history. Every single donor played a role in this success, so much that we exceeded our original goal by more than $10 million. Thank you for investing in the future, empowering our students, and transforming their lives.

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."
