IW housing scholarship available to Iowa high school seniors

Iowa Wesleyan University is now accepting applications from Iowa high school residents to receive 20 percent off their tuition and free housing, a $39,600 scholarship over four years at the University.

This scholarship is available to first-year, full-time students living on campus and will be awarded for eight consecutive semesters as long as the student is making satisfactory academic progress.

In addition to the 20 percent tuition reduction, there are other options to fund an Iowa Wesleyan education. Merit-based scholarships from IW and outside scholarships, along with need based aid, and federal and state grants are also available.

?This is an ideal time to be a part of the outstanding education at Iowa Wesleyan. With enrollment at a 167 percent increase over the last three years, Iowa Wesleyan offers a valuable college education at an affordable cost,? said Nick Boone, Vice President of Enrollment Management. ?Students are discovering their passion in a mentored setting that is preparing them for a bright future in their careers.?

Those who wish to transfer to Iowa Wesleyan from another institution may also benefit from the 20 percent reduction in tuition.
