For Incoming Freshmen and Transfer Students
Beginning Fall 2014, freshmen and first-time transfer students who select Business as a major may be eligible for an exciting new scholarship opportunity. The Gary E. West Academic Scholarship recognizes freshmen with a high school GPA of 3.25 and above and first-time transfer students with a college GPA of 3.0 and above.
The $2,500 annual scholarship, renewable for up to four years (three years for transfer students), is awarded in addition to other scholarships offered by the university, providing exceptional value for students, thanks to the ongoing support of our benefactor, Gary E. West.
Only 50 freshman scholarships and 30 transfer scholarships will be awarded, so it is important to apply for university admission before January 15. Your application to West Liberty University and designation of Business as your intended major automatically places you into consideration for a West Academic Scholarship; no separate application is needed. Awards will be based on date of acceptance and meeting eligibility criteria as shown in the chart below. Students will be notified that they have earned a West Academic Scholarship when the scholarship award process is complete.
If you have any questions about the scholarships listed below, please contact Brianne Poilek, Student Advisor, at [email protected] or call Brianne at 304.336.8419.
