Other Scholarships and Grants

Outside/Non-Wayland Scholarships

Wayland students bring in thousands of dollars in scholarships from outside organizations each year. We encourage students to use the many free scholarship search engines available to assist them in identifying scholarships they may be a match for. Some of our favorites are fastweb.com and BigFuture.

Submit all outside scholarship checks to the Office of Financial Aid for application to your student account. Unless otherwise stated by the awarding organization, scholarships will be equally divided between fall and spring terms and students will be held to University Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) policy.

Athletic Scholarships

Athletic scholarships of varying amounts are offered by the head coach of each sport and are administered in accordance with a contract signed by the student-athlete, the coach, and the Athletic Director. Unless otherwise stated in the contract, athletic scholarships are limited to tuition, require that students be enrolled full-time, and maintain a 2.0 cumulative GPA.

Local Church Grant

A $250 first-term grant is provided for every qualified full-time, freshman Plainview campus student duly admitted from the membership of a church which budgets monthly or annual contributions to the University's operational budget. This grant is provided in the name of the student's home church. Scholarships are limited to University budget allocation.
