THE GARY E. WEST ACHIEVEMENT SCHOLARSHIPGary Alumni Award

For Current WLU Business Students

Beginning Fall 2014, Business majors returning in the Fall semester may be eligible for the Gary E. West Achievement Scholarship.  This award recognizes the top 20 West Liberty University Business students who maintain a GPA at the university of at least 3.25.

The $2,500 annual scholarship, renewable for up to three years, is awarded in addition to other scholarships offered by the university, providing a significant recognition of student achievement thanks to the ongoing support of our benefactor, Gary E. West.

Only 10 achievement scholarships will be awarded, and all students meeting the eligibility criteria following the release of Spring semester grades will automatically be placed into consideration; no separate application is needed.  Awards will be based on institution GPA earned as of the close of Spring semester.  Students will be notified that they have earned a West Achievement Scholarship as soon as the award process is complete.
