The following Institutional Scholarships are paid toward tuition only.  Therefore, any other scholarships or grants that are also required to be paid toward tuition may reduce the amount of Institutional Scholarship that you receive.  For example, if you are awarded a $5,000 Merit Award Scholarship and are in the Army ROTC program, you will not receive any of the $5,000 Merit Award Scholarship as your tuition would be fully covered by the ROTC scholarship.

Merit Award Scholarship

Wentworth offers merit-based scholarships in addition to need-based aid.  All applicants are automatically considered for Merit Awards - no additional application is necessary.  Merit Scholarships range from $1,000 to $13,000 for the entering class of Fall 2018.  The Merit evaluation is determined by the Admissions Office and begins in mid-January.  The scholarship 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 2.5 institutional cumulative GPA. Graduate students are not eligible for the Merit award scholarship.

Wentworth Community Scholarship

Eligibility for this scholarship is determined by Wentworth’s Community Scholarship Committee.  It is open to returning students who show a significant commitment to the Wentworth Community through involvement in social, administrative, charitable and athletic activities. An eligible student must have completed four semesters and been enrolled full-time while maintaining an institutional cumulative GPA of 3.0 or better. Interested students should apply using the Endowed Scholarship application. Recipients must re-apply every year. Maximum award: $2,500.
