Independent Minds, Working Together

College Scholar Award


Students wishing to apply for the College Scholar Award, must submit their completed application for admission and online scholarship application (which will become available in early October) by January 15. An interview must also be requested by January 7 and completed by January 20. Please contact your admissions officer to discuss alternative options if you will be unable to schedule an on campus interview.

Because The College of Wooster curriculum emphasizes the importance of writing, your essay included in your application for admission will be evaluated in terms of how well you demonstrate thoughtful arguments, intellectual imagination, audience awareness, and engaging prose, as well as clarity, concision, and accuracy of language. The admissions committee will consider your essay, academic achievement, extra-curricular involvement, leadership and personal merit. Scholarship designations will be made by a combination of these evaluations.
