Individuals, businesses and organizations may participate in partnering with Wayne College to increase our scholarships for students. This is done through named scholarships. A named scholarship is a way of leaving a legacy and supporting the students both now and in the future.

  • Some named scholarship funds can supply a $500 scholarship every year. This endowed scholarship may be started with a minimum gift of $10,000. So a one-time gift creates the opportunity to perpetually give to Wayne College students that otherwise might not be able to attend.

  • Some named scholarships are annually funded by the donors. Example: A business may set aside $1,000-$2,000 annually and create the ABC Company Scholarship where all the donated funds will be awarded to qualifying students that academic year.

  • The donor may also want annual representation in the selection of scholarship recipients. In this case, the Wayne College Financial Aid Coordinator selects finalists for the donor to review.

  • Wayne College offers scholarships to students under academic and need-based guidelines.

  • Scholarships are designated for credit classes.

  • In Holmes County, businesses and individuals may want to formulate new scholarships based on recipients residing in the county and attending the Wayne College Holmes Campus located on the second floor at 88 E. Jackson Street in Millersburg.
