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 (available in September) by January 15. An interview with an admissions representative must be completed by January 17. If you have not already had an interview, please schedule on campus interview, contact your admissions officer to arrange a phone/skype interview, or email to arrange an interview with an alumni admissions advocate (request for the interview must be made by Monday, January 6).  

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.
