American Legion Summer Scholarship

The American Legion of Iowa Foundation granted Iowa Western four $500 scholarships for veterans and active duty service members. This scholarship can be used in the summer semester only. It is intended to help students achieve their educational goals as quickly as possible by bridging the spring and fall terms. Students are required to take at least one class during the summer semester and meet with the Coordinator of Veteran Services as often as necessary to ensure successful completion of the class.
Please contact the Coordinator of Veterans Services or the Scholarship Coordinator for more information about this scholarship.

Iowa Western Foundation Scholarships

Iowa Western Community College strives to make a positive difference in people’s lives through accessible and excellent educational programs and services. Iowa Western and the Iowa Western Foundation support this by working to assist students with access to scholarship sources. IWCC awards over 825 scholarships totaling over $2.2 million each year, and when you consider how low tuition is to begin with as well as the fact that the money is going to a fairly small pool of only about 3,000 students, that figure becomes even more staggering. IWCC has many scholarship opportunities available for new and continuing students:
Upon completion of the scholarship application, students will be considered for all available scholarships.  Applications remain on file for one academic year. All scholarship recipients must be a high school graduate or have completed a HiSET (GED).
