North Carolina Need-Based Scholarship

Preliminary awards are determined by the state of North Carolina; award amounts range from $1,000 to $7,640 annually based on financial need. To be considered, the student must complete the FAFSA and have an Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) between $0 and $15,000. The program's funding may be limited; for students who file later, funds may no longer be available. Students must be legal residents of the state of North Carolina, cannot possess a previous bachelor's degree, and must be enrolled in a degree program and maintaining satisfactory academic progress according to JWU guidelines. In order to finalize eligibility, residency determination is required via the Centralized Residency Determination Service (RDS).
