Our Opportunities

Welcome to Westmoreland County Community College’s Scholarship Opportunities Homepage.

Below you will find a listing of scholarships available to students with brief information about the scholarship qualifications. To apply for scholarships which require an application, you must first sign in with the user name and password you use to access your Westmoreland student portal. You will then be able to complete the 2020 General Application. The information you provide on the General Application is matched to all available scholarships. In some cases a scholarship requires an additional award specific application, if you are recommended for one of these awards you will be direct to those applications.
