You’ve Served Us. Now Let Us Serve You.

Student Veterans and ROTC Scholarship
This scholarship is open to returning students who are veterans, ROTC Cadets, and those who have made significant efforts to support veteran populations. The maximum amount awarded to each recipient is $4000 per year. Preference will be given to applicants who have taken on leadership roles at Wentworth and demonstrated a commitment to supporting veterans both at Wentworth and/or in their home communities. Students must have submitted their FAFSA application for the 2019-2020 school year. The scholarship is funded by the contributions of several generous donors who support our military connected students. Applications can be submitted at https://wit.academicworks.com/ (type "veteran" into the search bar) and must be received by June 14, 2019.
