Wor-Wic Offering Free Tuition For Stellar Students

Posted: Updated:

MARYLAND - A two-year institution, or community college, can be an inexpensive alternative to post secondary education. In 2012, nearly 11,000 people chose to enroll in college-level classes at Wor-Wic.

"This allows the students to get more bang for their buck, by attending Wor-Wic for those two years, to complete a lot of their core classes before they transfer forward," said Laura Barker, a Financial Aid Compliance Coordinator at Wor-Wic.

At less than $100 a credit, who can blame them, but free is even better! Wor-Wic's Board of Trustees Scholarship offers 12 students full tuition for a two year, consecutive enrollment period.

"Ten scholarships for one, from each of the ten public schools in Worcester, Wicomico, and Somerset Counties. Then two scholarships to private school seniors," said Barker.

Here are the requirements: the student must be a resident of Wicomico, Worcester or Somerset counties, have at least a 3.25 GPA, and maintain a 3.0 during enrollment. If you qualify but don't make the cut, not to worry.

"We'll provide them with some additional scholarships, whether it be merit based or need based that we have at Wor-Wic," said Barker.

The deadline for this scholarship is coming up soon. It's Monday April 1st, so apply now! For more information, head to our homepage and click on the DEF logo.
