Impact on Students
Scholarships empower students to succeed. Wayne State College students often describe how scholarships and financial support enable them to focus on their education, succeed in the classroom, stay involved in campus activities, and volunteer in their communities. Scholarships provide students with the opportunity to commit to their education, excel, and meet their goals.
Reduce Student Loan Debt
In 2019, Forbes Magazine stated student loan debt is the highest ever, at $1.5 trillion.
With additional scholarship support, we can increase the number of students who graduate with little or no debt, helping reduce financial stress after graduation.
"Affordability played a huge role in my choosing of WSC. Without having financial stress, I can focus on my education. My scholarship allowed me to keep my dream of attending med school, and now I worry less about future debt. I am very appreciative of scholarships and the opportunities they have allowed me."

Scholarships empower student-athletes to strive for success on and off the field. In competition, WSC student-athletes are given the opportunity to build character supporting their educational goals and sport.
Wayne State College athletics falls short to its competitors in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference and NCAA Division II when comparing the amount of scholarship dollars awarded to student-athletes. By increasing our athletic scholarships, WSC will become more competitive across all sports.
