Scholarships Available!


Each year West Virginia Junior College offers deserving area high school seniors the opportunity to finance a portion of their college investment through scholarship programs.

Not only do scholarships help families fund college tuition, but generally employers favorably view students who have competed and have been awarded scholarships towards their education.

“I’m not a number. I’m a student. My teachers know me by name. I’m getting a quality education and don’t feel so alone. It changed my outlook on college from terrifying to a more comfortable feeling. I found that I could get a quality education without having years of hassle.” – Shasta Shrader, WVJC Student
