Each year Wittenberg recognizes and rewards outstanding scholastic achievements by awarding Merit-Based Scholarships to deserving students. Students are automatically considered for these scholarships once they submit an application for admission to Wittenberg. Some scholarships require an additional step. Students may receive only one Merit-Based Scholarship. If a student is eligible for more than one Merit-Based Scholarship, the scholarship providing the higher dollar amount will be awarded. For priority consideration for all scholarships and awards, students must apply for admission to Wittenberg by the Early Action deadline of December 1. Although financial need is not a determining factor, by filing a FAFSA, students who demonstrate financial need may be eligible to receive other types of need-based assistance.
Special Interest Awards
In addition to merit-based scholarships, Wittenberg University recognizes individual talents, experiences and passions through special interest awards in the areas of art, dance, music, theatre, community engagement, entrepreneurship, environmental science, and student leadership. Each Special Interest Award requires a separate application. Priority consideration is given to students who apply for admission by the Early Action deadline of December 1. If selected, students may receive one Special Interest Award in addition to one Merit-Based Scholarship.
Wittenberg University has been related to the Lutheran Church since its founding in 1845. There are many unique scholarship opportunities open to Lutheran students.
Legacy and Alumni Awards
Wittenberg is proud to recognize the connections our alumni have with our future Tigers through two scholarship opportunities. The Wittenberg Legacy Scholarship celebrates the accomplishments of children and grandchildren of Wittenberg alumni, and the Alumni Recognition Award offers the opportunity for any Wittenberg alumni to nominate two high school seniors for an award on their behalf. Both are great opportunities for alumni to continue to promote the university to potential Wittenberg students and their families.
Additional Scholarship Opportunities
There are many different scholarship opportunities offered from organizations independent of Wittenberg University. We provide a reference for some of the scholarships our students have received in recent years.
