First-year and transfer students should complete the admissions application as early as possible to be evaluated for a merit scholarship. No additional scholarship forms are required to receive a merit award. Evaluation is determined by the Admissions Office during our holistic review process and may be renewed for up to five years, depending on the length of the recipient’s bachelor’s degree program. Recipients must be enrolled full-time (12 classroom credits) and maintain a 2.0 institutional cumulative GPA.
How to Apply
No additional scholarship forms are required. Admission applications received by the priority deadline will get first consideration.
Early Action Scholarship (For Fall 2021 Full-Time Applicants)
Submit your application by December 1, 2020 and be eligible for a $1,000 scholarship provided you are accepted. This scholarship is in addition to the merit award and need-based aid you may receive if accepted. You do not have to complete your admissions file by December 1. However, the sooner you do complete your admissions file, the sooner you will learn if you are accepted and, if so, be notified of the $1,000 scholarship and your merit award.
Mass STEM Hub Project
Lead the Way Scholarship In collaboration with Mass STEM Hub, Wentworth awards scholarships to all accepted students who are graduating from a Massachusetts high school and have completed at least three Project Lead the Way (PLTW) courses as indicated by completion of End of Course Assessments. Preference is given to students who apply and are accepted by March 15. Students who have completed two PLTW courses and are currently enrolled in the third course at the point of application, will be given equal consideration. Mass STEM Hub will provide Wentworth with a list of eligible students who have agreed to share their PLTW course performance by April 15.
The scholarship amount will vary based on the number of qualified candidates with a minimum guarantee of $1,000, renewable for the length of the student’s program, (eight semesters for all majors except for Electromechanical Engineering which is a 10-semester program) provided Satisfactory Academic Progress is maintained as outlined in Wentworth’s catalog. An application is not required by the student to be considered for this scholarship.
